Clayton, NCMaster Plan
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about designing community hospitals over the last quarter century, it is that change is inevitable. Flexibility, both in design and attitude, is critical. That’s why everything about our work with Johnston Health speaks to adaptability, from the location of their outpatient facility to the master plan itself. The chassis-like design constructed in 2009 to support Johnston Health’s Phase 1 outpatient wing on the Clayton campus, efficiently accommodates Phase 2, a 104,188 square-foot 50-bed inpatient tower, completed in 2015. Support services added as a result of the new inpatient wing include a kitchen and new dining area, classrooms that double as community space and a gift shop. A new women’s center offers larger-than-normal, spa-like labor rooms, including a C-section room strategically located adjacent to the existing surgery area.
