Administration Suite

The expansion of PinnacleHealth System’s Emergency Room created the opportunity to relocate and modernize the Hospital’s Administration Suite.  This would constitute the first phase of nine difficult phasing requirements.

The Hospital leadership’s charge for the design of the suite was that an understated, yet elegant and professional, atmosphere prevails throughout the individual offices and the corporate board room.

The unique design challenge presented in this project lie in the fact that the new corporate suite would be placed in the two story, former School of Nursing, gymnasium. 

As we approached the design, it was apparent we needed to create a main entrance to the new Hospital Administration Suite and this needed to occur at the upper level of the proposed suite.  An existing level area within a ramped access corridor adjacent to the upper level of the gymnasium was surveyed and determined to be the appropriate elevation for the upper level and main entrance for the suite.

Upon entering the new Hospital Administration Suite, a waiting and reception area was designed to receive visitors.  A intercommunicating stair within the reception area provides access to the lower level corporate board room, small conference room and administrative offices.  The remaining hospital administrators offices were located at the upper level immediately accessible to the reception area and having direct access to the adjacent hospital.  Existing clerestory windows at the ceiling of the gymnasium were retained to provide natural light into the upper level administrative offices.

The final design took advantage of this “open canvas” and created a comfortable, two-story suite that maximized available space.
