When Middle Tennessee Medical Center—today known as Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital—announced plans to build a 286-bed replacement hospital, GS&P was commissioned to provide architectural, structural, interior design, graphics and master planning services for the project, as well as two state-of-the-art medical office buildings.

Setting the tone for the architectural context of the entire Murfreesboro campus, the four-story, 126,400-square-foot DePaul Medical Office Building was the first facility to be constructed on STRH’s new 70-acre greenfield property. As GS&P was commissioned to design the new MOB on site before the new replacement facility was constructed, the design team was challenged with locating the building in a manner that wouldn’t impede on the yet-to-be designed hospital. Additionally, the team had to design and detail the DePaul building with materials and features that wouldn’t constrain their freedom to develop the aesthetics of the new hospital.

Designed to connect to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital’s first and second floors via a two-level walkway connector—as well as complement the architectural essence of the future campus—the DePaul Medical Office Building was occupied 18 months prior to the completion of the new replacement facility. It offers residents of Rutherford County and the surrounding area leading-edge healthcare services including: an ambulatory surgery center that features six operating rooms and a 19-bed recovery area; X-ray and imaging services; patient exam rooms; doctors’ offices; and administrative offices.
