  • Gresham Smith worked to prioritize the patient experience in the realization of Baptist Health South Florida’s Plantation Medical Office Building located in Plantation, Florida.

    With a focus on prioritizing the patient experience, offering state-of-the-art care, and creating flexibility for the future, the new Baptist Health South Florida Plantation medical office building provides convenient care for the tri-county community.

    Given the facility houses many different services and modalities, it was imperative the design provide a flexible floor plan. While each suite is customized to the tenant, the entire building is designed to adapt for future use—it can even be converted into a micro-hospital at a later date. The design team located mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems on the side of the building, rather than in each suite, so future renovations will require less re-engineering.

    Maintaining a consistent modern look and feel as Baptist Health’s other recently completed facilities, the Plantation medical complex features tilt-up walls, metal panels and curtain wall glazing on the exterior. Emphasizing Baptist Health’s branding, the facility features the health system’s logo embedded on the façade. Additionally, color-changing exterior lights increase visibility from the adjacent interstate, while modern metal panels and curtain wall glazing reflect the high-quality care patients can expect to receive inside.

    The interior is comprised of modern finishes and colors to align with Baptist Health’s brand. The design concept inside is clean and modern, with a color-coded wayfinding system that makes it easy and enjoyable for patients to navigate the building. The facility’s neutral, warm palette is accentuated with pops of blues and greens, with each floor having a specific color scheme.

    With patient experience at the heart of the design, the team-oriented Oncology treatment bays face north to maximize daylight and allow for beautiful views of the lake. The modern interior palette aims to create a calming environment for patients as they receive treatment.
