Healthcare Planning

Urban Campus Master Planning

Challenge

Array’s relationship with Capital Health began with the stand-alone hospitals that merged to become Capital Health System. Our 20+ year history made us the logical choice for campus improvements when Capital Health decided on a strategic plan to increase their cachement area into the suburbs and simultaneously improve their care delivery in Trenton. Our knowledge of their infrastructure, service lines and demographics made us a valued consultant.

Solution

Array developed the master plan and implementation plan leading to the renovation of Capital Health’s Trenton facilities to respond to an increased demand for patient care services at this urban Regional Medical Center while at the same time planning for the suburban, Greenfield replacement hospital where many services were being relocated from a second urban facility which was shuttered.  A state-mandated Regional Perinatal Center with obstetrics, neonatal and pediatric care became the centerpiece of the Trenton campus planning effort. Other priority service lines were neurology and intensive care. An all-private patient room configuration has improved family-centered model of care at the  facility.

Result

All master planning-resultant construction was completed to coincide with patient transfers from the closing hospital to both the Regional and new, suburban campus.  Post-occupancy evaluations have shown a significant growth in both patient and staff satisfaction with the new department configurations, adjacencies and contemporary design.
