Perkins + Will implemented a multi-faceted provision to provide a sustainable, patient-centered practice at the new Piedmont Hospital in Newnan. Comfort, Flexibility and Safety balanced with Innovation, function and Inspiration is supported throughout the design and solid surface tops made of HI-MACS® are strong and hygienic satisfying strict healthcare requirements in every way. The material is certified and locally sourced which supports to maintain a conservative budget and the specifics of higher level quality and cost-effectiveness.
There were purposeful designated green spaces and natural areas that serve to organize the overall campus and provide restorative spaces for patients, visitors and staff. The design of the spaces responds to that diagram. The green out door public mall simplifies access to many of the clinical services and destinations for patients and visitors, such as radiology, laboratory, cardiopulmonary and respiratory therapy services. Views to the outside are secured at all points. The shapes and style of the interiors are meant to "Do No Harm" inspired by green space, nature and healing. Utilizing HI-MACS®, non-aggressive welcoming shapes were formed that fits the aspiration of Piedmont Hospital, and Perkins + Will proudly received the Modern Healthcare Award in 2012.
