Ratcliff Designs Hospital of the Future for John Muir Medical Center - Walnut Creek Campus
Date:4/3/2008

EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 3, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Ratcliff, the award-winning architecture, planning and interiors firm, master planned and designed a new five-story, 380,000-square-foot patient care tower accompanied by a 767-stall parking garage and 20,000-square-foot central plant at the John Muir Medical Center - Walnut Creek Campus. The Thomas J. and Muriel T. Long Patient Care Tower that recently broke ground will add 230 private and six semi-private rooms, increasing the hospital's total beds by 27 percent to 416. Ratcliff (http://www.ratcliffarch.com) developed a long-term program for remodel and expansion of the entire Walnut Creek Campus to address SB-1953 seismic safety issues and to assist the hospital in meeting future health care demands of this rapidly growing suburban area.

A phased, orderly approach to growth of the hospital campus over the next 50 years was integral to Ratcliff's master plan. The patient tower's column-free zone from the perimeter of the building to the center core allows for future changes in location of rooms, if needed. In the surgery departments, operating rooms have been planned to accommodate advances in guided imagery and other surgical innovation in the future.

"We have master planned a framework that will facilitate future growth and changes, allowing John Muir to continue to be the outstanding hospital it is today," said Crodd Chin, Ratcliff principal and the project's design architect.

New patient rooms are designed for privacy and noise reduction, natural lighting, and distinct "zones" for the patient, caregiver, family, hygiene, and equipment. These zones, in addition to the new facility's plan to be nearly paperless, filmless, and wireless, help to enhance patient and visitor comfort, increase patient privacy and staff efficiency, and decrease medical errors and hospital acquired infections.
