Major cost savings resulted from North Tampa Behavioral Health Center's strategic placement on a Greenfield site, leveraging one protected wetland as a front entrance feature, and nestling patient wings between additional protected wetlands. A compact, flexible single-story design maximizes efficiency, minimizing construction costs and offering ongoing operational savings. Three separate patient wings - each serving a distinct patient population – access centrally located support services, such as soiled utility, clean utility, exam rooms, a staff break room and storage. Centralizing support services rather than duplicating them within each patient wing provides efficiencies in stocking and servicing.
