Portfolio | MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital
A welcoming environment
As the first hospital in Washington State to achieve LEED Silver, Good Samaritan puts the patient and family at the center of care in an environmentally friendly and welcoming setting.
- Puyallup, WA
MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital is comprised of a nine-story tower that is situated at the top of a hill with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges in Puyallup, Washington. The 160-bed patient care tower and medical office building includes 80 private patient rooms and floors for 80 additional rooms, an emergency department, an imaging department, a surgery department, parking garage, and a central utility plant across the street with an underground tunnel attaching it to the new facility.
Spanning six city blocks, the hospital was built to incorporate the natural environment into the facility with an ambitious sustainability goal. The hospital is the first registered LEED hospital in Washington state and has received a LEED Silver certification.
The HVAC, plumbing, and med gas systems are located on a dedicated interstitial floor midway up the tower and reduce energy consumption by utilizing low-velocity ducting, high-efficiency chillers and mid-building air handlers. Throughout the project, the project team utilized 3D models to determine conflicts among the trades and the structural model providing detailed and accurate simulations of the built environment.
The construction schedule was tied to the 3D model developed by the trades partners to allow for simulations of the built environment in real-time.
