Queens Hospital Center: Ambulatory Care Pavilion

New York, New York
Perkins Eastman provided architectural and interior design for a 144,000 sf ambulatory care facility that completes the replacement plan for this large public hospital. The new Pavilion provides 70,000 sf of behavioral health, pediatrics, primary care, dialysis, dental, and eye care functions, as well as administrative, educational, and training facilities. The five-level building provides a signature landmark for the hospital campus at its northern edge and is linked to a new hospital building.

The 300-foot-long structure is organized by a glazed public concourse along the southern side. This cantilevered circulation spine links all clinics to the staff and service elevator core on the west and the public elevator core to the east. Clinic spaces are organized in modules, with a clear separation of patient and staff circulation and a plan that allows flexible use by various specialties. The exterior of pre-cast concrete and a glass curtain wall harmonizes with other new buildings on this site. The building also provides a two-story atrium and public entry plaza at the eastern end and a staff/service entry on the west.
