Programmed to meet the growing demand of Kaiser Permanente’s membership in the region, the ground-up San Marcos Hospital will provide 206-beds including ICU, medical surgical, NICU and LDRP and post-partum services as well as 51 bays of emergency services, 8 OR’s and 2 IR and imaging services. The seven-story-plus-basement-facility is located on an existing Kaiser Permanente campus with four MOBs.
New facilities will include a 26,000-sf central plant, depressed loading, and service yard and landscaped surface parking improvements. The aluminum and glass-clad, high-energy performance facility is targeting LEED for Healthcare Gold certification at a minimum.
The design concept for this project was inspired primarily by the geology of the site – the lakes and mountains of San Marcos. Some of the key spaces within the building highlight the "points of discovery" respectfully to San Marcos.
