You might say the hospital was in a bit of a tight spot with their existing facilities. That's because the hospital and original medical office building were adjacent to a huge bluff and occupied virtually all of the buildable space. And, of course, the master plan had to allow for "business as usual" operations throughout the project, requiring a well-orchestrated plan. The resulting design solution includes a multi-phase masterplan that carefully lays out the steps required to efficiently relocate the existing MOB offsite, and then proceed to meticulously shuffle everything around over a period of as much as a decade or more - all supporting the goal of continuing to provide state-of-the art care on the existing building site.
