Northwest Medical Center Oro Valley Oro Valley, AZ
The design of this new acute care hospital meets market demands for an outpatient-focused hospital. In addition to 144 inpatient beds, the facility includes an 18-bay emergency department, four operating rooms, outpatient services (imaging/ diagnostic, cardiopulmonary testing, endoscopy, day surgery, and lab), and outpatient physical therapy for orthopedics and sports medicine.
State of the art technology features filmless radiology, wireless phones and computers, computerized drug dispensing, wireless cardiac monitoring, high definition imaging and cardiac cath lab, and minimally invasive surgery suites.
The exterior is an example of community-influenced architecture, featuring a color palette based on three tones of a single color derived from natural colors of the site. Blue tinted glass reflects the color of the Arizona sky, while helping to reduce energy costs.
