About the Project

The Kaiser Anaheim Medical Center is a 642,800-SF project with three major components that sits on a 27-acre site. The hospital component is a six-story 434,000-SF, steel frame with slab on metal deck structure. The Central Utility Plant (CUP) component is three stories and 31,800 SF, and the Hospital Support Building (HSB) is 177,000 SF.

The Kaiser Anaheim Medical Center is based on a new template design that represents the next generation of Kaiser Permanente facilities. This design allows for enhanced flexibility and adaptability to accommodate changing practices and technologies. The project included a basement plus six levels, 262 beds, 13 operating rooms, an MRI facility, 10 delivery rooms, 36 ER bays, 24 pediatric beds, 20 neonatal intensive care bassinet rooms, an inpatient pharmacy, a laboratory, central sterile, dining services, and a morgue.

The hospital is a six-story steel frame with a slab on metal deck structure. Prior to constructing the hospital, liquefaction on the site was mitigated by the installation of 5,868 stone columns. These three-foot diameter columns ranged in depth from 35 to 50 feet and contained over 58,375 cy of rock. The hospital foundation system consists of a mat slab, and the seismic restraint is completed utilizing a BRB bracing system constructed by Nippon. The skin is metal stud and plaster with punch windows at the patient rooms, curtain wall at the stairs and storefront at Level 1.

The Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical Center Hospital Support Building (HSB) is a 177,000-SF facility adjoined to the main hospital that receives utility services from the Central Utility Plant. The HSB consisted of six outpatient surgery suites, a clinical lab, a pharmacy, urology, OB-GYN, cardiology and oncology, and an imaging radiology department. Complete with a helistop at the roof level and ground floor main entry lobby, this building also serves as the primary entry to the medical center facility.

The sitework contained over 50 specimen oak trees at least 72 box and larger, five water features and 25 rocks weighing over 8,000 pounds each, the largest of which topped the scale at 25,000 pounds.
