Via Christi Hospital Manhattan – New Patient Tower and Courtyard

Via Christi Hospital Manhattan

Location: Manhattan, Kansas
Year Completed: 2005
Size: 196,000 SF
Awards and Publications: Healthcare Design Magazine – Architectural Showcase 2006

Via Christi Hospital Manhattan is the result of the consolidation of two existing healthcare facilities into a single entity on one campus. The owner’s vision from the beginning was to provide the residents of multiple surrounding communities with patient-focused healthcare and associated services.

The project replaces and expands hospital service capabilities with more than 146,000 SF of new construction and over 50,000 SF of renovated space. The program for this project called for the replacement of inpatient beds with a new patient tower housing all private rooms. The new patient tower also accommodates a new surgery department, intensive care unit, progressive care unit, emergency department, women’s center, lobby, gift shop, admitting and registration, business office, pharmacy, and central sterile.

The existing facility was renovated to house radiology, laboratory, respiratory therapy, cafeteria, meeting rooms, administrative offices, medical records, and a physician lounge.

In the center of the hospital is a healing garden designed to give patients, families, visitors, and staff a serene place in which to mediate or “get away.”
