SAN JORGE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL

SAN JUAN, PR

San Jorge Children’s Hospital, located in the heart of San Juan, Puerto Rico selected HHCP Healthcare to design and construct an extensive four-story expansion and renovations to their facility. This 57,000 SF project includes: a new hospital entrance, lobby and a 33-bed emergency department on the first floor; an outpatient surgery and 12-bed pediatric intensive care unit on the second floor; a 22-bed pediatric oncology unit on the third floor; and shell space for future expansions on the fourth floor. Construction is expected to be complete early 2012.

 

To meet the Owner’s goal of developing a leading facility both in design and patient experience, the HHCP design team incorporated cross-pollination, a leading trend in the healthcare industry, throughout the design of this facility. This process integrates various design techniques across an array of disciplines while considering the individual experiences of its patients, visitors and staff.

 

After numerous site visits and meetings to help the team fully embrace the client’s vision for this project, the HHCP team created the design concept: “la esperanza de el oceano a la casa de Puerto Rico” or an ocean of hope at the rich port home - based on the culture of the island. With this theme, each floor of the building is unique, with the first floor serving as “the voyage,” the second as “the settlement,” and the third being “the forest.” Each area will incorporate “patient experience enhancements” to provide children with an organic, easily interactive and positive, welcoming environment with entertaining experiences they will easily connect with and feel comfortable in. When complete, this children’s hospital will be as unique as the children it serves, offering state-of-the-art healthcare services within a welcoming, creative and healing environment.

 

In addition to the expansion, HHCP is also working on a 20-bed adolescent behavioral unit, an emergency power conversion and a new emergency generator building at the facility.
