Main Lobby and Feature Stair
This central hub of the new building will have comfortable seating areas, a reception desk, and the distinctive feature staircase – a hospital landmark – that will be overlooked by skylights, filling the room with abundant natural light.
Six times the size of the current pool, the pool in the new West Park will have three different depths, a ramp and two accessible lifts, and special sensory stimulation equipment and lights.
The Weishuhn Auditorium
As the largest event space in the new build, the Weishuhn Auditorium will host and support a wide range of events and functions such as conferences, telemedicine sessions, town halls, multi-faith services, movie nights and gala dinners.
Patio and Cafeteria
The bright and inviting Robert and Patricia Martin & Family Café will open onto the beautiful outdoor patio, giving patients, families, and staff a chance to enjoy the stunning greenery of the new campus. At double the occupancy of the current cafeteria, it is sure to become a central gathering place for the new hospital.
