Designing renovations to help UPMC's transition to a thoroughly patient-focused design

UPMC Susquehanna wanted to renovate their Williamsport Regional Medical Center. A new patient tower, the highlight of the renovations, features spacious single-occupancy rooms, a larger, more efficient emergency department, and upgraded services for a number of departments.

Our job? Architecture and project management. The design looks toward the local history in Williamsport’s logging industry, which is reflected in the overall façade and interiors. Elements of nature are incorporated throughout multiple campus buildings in color schemes, artwork, natural light, and local hardwood and stone.

Patient areas were designed to enhance patient and staff experience with attention to sight, smell, sound, and comfort. In the patient tower, a separate network of staff elevators and corridors decreases congestion, odors, and noise while also providing clear pathways for staff access. Rooftop air handling units with isolators help reduce mechanical noise and vibration. Our project managers worked closely to facilitate the design as well as the intricacies of the sound vibrations to support the client’s overall mission and vision of the project.

The private patient rooms are equipped to accommodate and encourage family visitation and involvement in the patient’s care. Features like independently controlled light levels and temperatures, television access, and on-demand food service seal the deal for a thoroughly patient-focused design.
