About the Project
The $217 million, 194,000-SF, Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Medical Center consisted of two major components, an existing Inpatient Tower (IPT) Building and an Ancillary Building. The existing IPT building was renovated to house approximately 120 patient beds and other essential hospital services, such as an emergency department, inpatient pharmacy, radiology, operating rooms, and central sterilization and support functions. The emergency department will support an estimated 30,000 annual visits, with an additional 5,000 annual patient follow-up visits. The IPT is supplemented by an existing 28,000-SF Hospital Services Building that houses materials management, food and nutrition services, and waste management services. A pneumatic tube system was installed to serve and connect the Inpatient Tower, new MACC and Hawkins buildings.
The two-story, 23,000-SF Ancillary Building, adjacent to the IPT, is integral to its circulation and operation. This building contains the main entry point and lobby to the hospital, the cafeteria to serve the entire campus, and corridors required to traverse the various reconfigured campus buildings. It also houses Hospital Administration on the second floor of the building. This building sits atop the existing utility and new pedestrian tunnels providing access between the Hospital Service Building and the IPT.
