Providing patient care in one of the fastest growing areas in the country, Novant Health sought to expand beyond its Manassas hospital campus to provide services in northern Prince William County. Completed by GS&P in 2008, the master plan and Phase 1 development of the Haymarket campus consisted of an ambulatory care center, a freestanding emergency department and a medical office building. In 2011, Novant Health once again selected GS&P to design Phase 2 of the new campus development; a 221,000-square-foot, 60-bed hospital.
Adopting Novant’s prototypical design concepts, the medical/surgical inpatient units consist of standardized, private patient rooms, which have access to supplies and medications at each room. Decentralized staff work areas, or “huddle stations,” provide space on the unit for caregiver collaboration, enabling nurses to maximize their time at a patient’s bedside, enhancing the quality of care and the overall patient experience.
The exterior building design—a combination of cost-effective masonry materials and glazing with a limited curtain wall—complements the existing community architecture and ties in seamlessly with the medical office building, creating a cohesive campus. A large outdoor plaza provides a welcoming space for staff and visitors to relax, while the overall design is committed to functionality and improved efficiency. GS&P worked diligently with the general contractor and the Novant design and construction team to achieve a cost-effective and aesthetic design solution for the building, resulting in significant savings to the owner.
The success of the Haymarket Medical Center project is a testament to the power of teamwork and collaboration between the owner, our design team and the general contractor. The team worked closely throughout each phase of the design and construction process, enabling the hospital to be completed within the owner’s budget and schedule.
