The new Saint Joseph Hospital is a 840,000 SF complete replacement of the existing hospital and presented the unique opportunity to create a new image and identity for one of Denver’s premier healthcare institutions. It features 365 single-occupancy patient rooms that promote patient privacy and family-centered care. An integrated unit supporting all invasive procedure services adds efficiency and functionality for staff while two new hybrid ORs offer expanded services in the specialty cardiology center. This project was completed by the design team of H+L Architecture/Davis – A Joint Venture as the Architect, in association with ZGF Architects, LLP as Design Consultant.

The aim of this study was to examine the influence of visibility on teamwork, collaborative communication, and security issues in emergency departments (EDs). This research explored whether with high visibility in EDs, teamwork and collaborative communication can be improved while the security issues will be reduced. Visibility has been regarded as a critical design consideration and can be directly and considerably impacted by ED’s physical design.
