BayCare Mease Countryside Hospital Pavilion

Safety Harbor, Florida

A master plan set the stage for significant expansion and renovation of the healthcare campus.

Following its development of a master plan for the existing Mease Countryside Hospital campus, Haskell coordinated medical facilities planning and complete design services for a major expansion and renovation project consisting of a four-story, 123,000-square-foot (SF) new patient pavilion, two pharmacies, including one new hospital pharmacy and one chemo pharmacy, a 950-space parking structure, a 13,200 SF covered pedestrian bridge and more than 100,000 SF of backfill renovation. BayCare Mease Countryside selected Haskell Healthcare Construction to construct the Pavilion, Parking Structure and Pedestrian Bridge.

Numerous changes brought to life BayCare’s vision for making patient care even better.

The construction of this project addresses several of the client’s goals to enhance its standard of care. New, fully private medical/surgical and critical care patient rooms provide additional space for both clinical staff and family. The project also consolidates the hospital’s critical care platform on a single floor of the pavilion, creating more efficient staffing and workflow. Finally, a separate 30-bed observation unit allows the relocation of actual observation patients from acute settings, facilitating better use of bed units and decompressing the ED.

The pavilion created a central garden courtyard that serves as a functional and aesthetic asset.

The placement of the new pavilion simultaneously creates a central garden courtyard and a square circulation pattern on each floor. This allows the garden to serve as a central wayfinding element, as visualized from the elevator landing on each floor, in lieu of signage alone. Additionally, the new pavilion is stepped to create two functionally manageable units for each floor rather than a long racetrack configuration. This improves patient satisfaction and wayfinding, reduces noise, increases team member satisfaction and creates a safer patient environment. Haskell is pleased to have had the opportunity to provide our full suite of Advisory Services, Design Services and Construction Services for this client and extensive project.
