The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Sheikh Zayed Tower and The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center
In designing the Sheikh Zayed Tower and The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, we employed a patient-centered model including intuitive wayfinding with a clear separation of public, patient, and service circulation. The design provides large work areas for convenient, close collaboration among all caregivers. Work areas are enclosed to minimize patient room noise yet provide patient visibility through glass walls.
Involving more than one hundred members of our team in the process, we created a 12-story building that includes adult and children’s beds, operating rooms, laboratories, endoscopy/bronchoscopy rooms, radiology services, pediatric emergency department, two floors of faculty offices, auditorium and pharmacy.
