The Shepley Bulfinch healthcare team and Yale New Haven Health System’s recently celebrated the opening of Park Avenue Medical Center in Trumbull, Connecticut. The 100,000 s.f. facility provides access to quality outpatient care in southwestern Connecticut with a range of hospital and health system services that include ambulatory surgery, cancer treatment, radiology, urgent and primary care, and breast care.
“It was really exciting to see a massive swath of parking lots transform into a unified campus. I think the most successful part of the design actually has nothing to do with the exceptional healthcare design and care provided, those are a given,” said project manager Mike Gailey. “The ‘secret healing garden’ is of such high quality and is so well incorporated into the interior and exterior design that the building and garden feel like they were always there, and most importantly; you forget you are in a hospital setting.”
As quoted by Amanda Cuba for the Connecticut Post in a recent article, patient Joan McCann agrees: “Look at the nice view I have. It’s not like sitting in a doctor’s office.” For more information about the opening, click here. For more information about the project, click here.
