Center for Heart and Vascular Care Projects Tampa General Hospital's Brandon Healthplex has been completed. Designed by GS&P, the new outpatient center is one of the fi rst facilities in Florida to include the array of acuity levels and service centers in one building. ARCO Murray Construction Company served as the general contractor on the project. The curved main entry façade draws inspiration from the gentle waves that surround the Tampa General main campus on Davis Island. The simple colors also refl ect the Davis Island main campus. The modern and warm interior, including a hospitality-inspired lobby, were informed by contemporary com- mercial spaces and invokes a sense of tranquility throughout the building. With an eye toward the future, select patient rooms in the ambulatory surgery center are equipped with showers. This will allow patients to stay longer than 24 hours, should the ambulatory surgical center regulations in Florida change. Additionally, the standardized, same-handed exam rooms provide effi ciencies. Caregivers can focus on the patient rather than adapting to various exam environments. The four-story, 130,000-square-foot facility houses an emergency department, as well as primary and specialty care physician practices, ambulatory surgery, an outpatient laboratory draw station, a retail pharmacy, café and outpatient surgery center. completed & upcoming STATS: 130,000 FT 2 > FOUR STORY > DESIGN: GS&P > GENERAL CONTRACTOR: ARCO MURRAY CONSTRUCTION COMPANY IN BRIEF OUTPATIENT Tampa General's Flagship Center Improves Health Through Access
