Prince William Medical Center had proudly served the Manassas community since 1964. Over the decades, however, disjointed renovations and additions had left the facility with a host of issues affecting both its day-to-day operations and its public image. After taking ownership of the medical campus in 2009, Novant Health quickly realized that facility improvements were needed in order to support their staff and visitors, and perhaps most importantly, to enhance the patient experience.
Following an internal review of issues and challenges, Gresham Smith was selected by the client to assist with the creation and implementation of a master plan to correct problems carried over from the past. Phase 4 of the master plan afforded us the perfect opportunity to a deliver a design solution for Novant Health UVA Health Prince William Medical Center that paired much-needed circulation improvements with a sleek and unified new facade.
Cohesive & ModernCreating a welcoming first impression for patients and visitors entering the campus, the new facade reflects Novant Health’s commitment to the Prince William community and the quality of healthcare provided within. Our design unites various structural elements built over five decades to create a cohesive, modern look.
A Peek Inside
The new facade creates a two-story lobby area, replete with terrazzo flooring, that houses the facility’s new, appropriately sized registration area. Comfortable and intimate seating offer an enhanced patient and visitor experience, while ample natural light improves the look and feel of the space. The renovation also provided direct access to existing public visitor elevators, aiding in wayfinding.
