Location: Charleston, South Carolina
Construction Value: $350 million
Client: Perkins + Will Architects, McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, Walter P. Moore
Project Completed: On-going
The new facility will accommodate approximately 200 beds. It will include a neonatal intensive care unit, pediatric intensive care unit, labor and delivery unit, special care nursery, children’s emergency services, women’s services and other specialties. Like the Ashley River Tower hospital next door, this facility is designed to be a disaster-resistant hospital. Despite being built on a peninsula on a site that was once marsh before being covered with fill material, this hospital is designed to withstand an earthquake, a hurricane, and flooding while remaining operational.
Ground breaking could take place in 2017 and the new hospital could open in 2019 or 2020.
