Hackensack University Medical Center / HUMC
Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC), one of two flagship Academic Medical Centers within the Hackensack Meridian Health System, is constructing a new critical care and surgical pavilion that will improve their quality of care.
The facades of the building will be made with GammaStone Natural AIR panels made of travertine marble.
The aura of eternity guaranteed by the Roman Travertine is well known throughout the world. This project effectively proves that tradition and innovation can be combined to provide an impressive aesthetic result together with a high quality of living.
The Helena Theurer Pavilion will be a new, eleven-story, 530,000 s.f. building that will encompass 24 state-of-the-art operating rooms, with six robotic operating rooms and an intra-operative MRI; 50 intensive care patient rooms; 100 medical/surgical private patient rooms; and a 50-bed orthopedic institute with a CT scanner. Its design also provides future flexibility for the hospital, with a shell space for an additional twenty-five intensive care patient rooms. Spanning over an existing public roadway, the facility connects to an existing parking garage, the Heart and Vascular Institute, and the existing main hospital. A new lobby and valet drop-off will create a dedicated entrance for the critical care and surgical pavilion, and the project’s new single-patient rooms will provide the hospital with the flexibility to modernize their existing patient rooms from semi-private to private rooms.
