Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center
Daytona Beach, FL
Hospital: 564,260 SF
One of the fastest growing regions in Florida is home to a new 12-story hospital, replacing the former Ormond Memorial Hospital in Ormond Beach. The 135-acre green site on the Interstate provides a visible and accessible location that includes an attached medical office building, a wellness center and other medical campus amenities and services.
The hospital has 245 beds, including 82 critical care beds. The building also contains shell space to accommodate another 75 beds as demand requires. The elliptical element serves as an orienting element on the first floor, joining the medical office complex with the hospital via a public concourse. All publicly accessed departments are located off the concourse. On the upper floors, the ellipse serves as the public elevator lobby. In addition, the staff respite/lounge space is located here, providing views of the city and wetlands.
The emergency department has an open architectural configuration to maximize site lines and accessibility of staff to all points of care. Other features include all private rooms, “one-way” patient flow patterns, and immediate adjacency to imaging and cardiopulmonary services.
