California Pacific Medical Center

St. Luke’s Hospital

Location: San Francisco, CA
Client:  Sutter Health /California Pacific Medical Center
Architect: SmithGroupJJR / Boulder Associates

Project Description:

In response to Senate Bill 1953 requiring all acute care hospitals and medical facilities to meet stringent seismic design standards, California Pacific Medical Center, a Sutter Health affiliate, has begun the design and construction of a new seven-story, 214,061 square foot, 120-bed acute-care hospital on the existing St. Luke’s Campus in San Francisco. The new hospital will be located to the west of the existing hospital, on the campus’ existing surface parking lot and over a portion of San Jose Avenue. The existing hospital will remain in operation during construction of the new building.

Information and clinical technologies are designed to increase communication between patients and their care team.  Each room will feature an integrated nurse/emergency call system, along with a multi-purpose media system providing patient education, communication and education features.  Sutter’s Epic Electronic Medical Record system will be deployed throughout the facility utilizing medical-grade wired and wireless systems to support access to healthcare information.  A Real Time Location System (RTLS) will support asset tracking and patient location.

The project is using groundbreaking Lean Construction methods, including an Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) and Integrated Project Delivery Team (IPDT) and is using BIM to improve coordination efforts during the design.
