The new 108 bed Penn State Health (PSH) Hampden Medical Center will bring the PSH brand and quality of care to its first greenfield community hospital operating remotely from the central main campus of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
The architecture inspired by the rolling hills carved by the Susquehanna river basin; using transparency, reflectivity, and rhythm of façade patterns to recall the beauty and physics of river geographies. The use of riparian visual metaphors creates a design expressing a striking high-tech image with the timeless character of local natural features.
The building will present a welcoming presence and clear wayfinding, while shielding the noise and traffic from the adjacent residences as much as possible. The project aspires to have a high level of care and technology that PSH is known for, combined with convenience, and neighborhood engagement of a community hospital. The team implemented multiple strategies to achieve these goals.
With a focus on flexibility – the team implemented our own vetted Universal Grid to provide maximum flexibility to accommodate expanding and new, evolving care models for the future. The Women’s Health Clinic is built based on a clinic module that can be replicated in future phases to add future outpatient clinic services and ED treatment rooms and Observation rooms have been identically, sized, configured and equipped to provide flexibility for varying daily census. The Acute Care and Women’s Health inpatient units have been designed based on a standard model of care for all acute care units to allow for greater flexibility in the future. The IMC and ICU inpatient units are designed with flexibility and acuity adaptability to accommodate varying patient acuity needs. The IMC will be designed to flex to accommodate ICU patients as well as Med/Surg patients and will be capable of flexing to accommodate IMC patients. Additionally, the Hampden Medical Center inpatient platform will integrate eICU technology. This eICU process is already active at Penn State Hershey Medical Center and will be implemented at the greenfield Hospital to enhance care possibilities.
