Doylestown Hospital Patient Care Expansion

Location: Doylestown, PA
Architect: FreemanWhite Architects

O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for the 2-story 145,000 SF addition to the existing hospital. The first floor serves as a replacement emergency department with a 40-bed nursing unit on the second floor. A 46,500 SF basement houses mechanical equipment and additional shell space.

The addition includes an indoor Hazmat/Bioterrorism treatment facility, a second floor shell space that will accommodate the potential future expansion of 39 additional private treatment areas, a 120 ft. underground pedestrian tunnel linking the hospital addition to the parking garage, two large emergency department entrance canopies and provisions for a future three-story vertical expansion with a rooftop helipad.
