UT SOUTHWESTERN HOSPITAL

1.85M SF  |  752 Beds  |  Dallas, Texas

The facility was designed with two primary components: a podium and the tower. The podium incorporates modular planning principles to effectively house all diagnostic and treatment departments as well as major support services with a distinct separation of flow between visitor, staff/patient and support services. The modular principles are enhanced by incorporating uninterrupted corridors running north-south allowing disciplined expansion pathways. The tower incorporates a serrated configuration with elevator cores at each bend. The benefit of such a design is to reduce nursing footsteps, bring supplies and service closer to the bedside, reduce the effects of noise, and ultimately to increase hours of direct nursing care per day. This configuration also creates a repetitive pattern that is easily expandable.

Completed while at CallisonRTKL, Clemente Jaquez served as a Lead Designer.

Additionally, during his time at Hoefer Wysocki, Clemente Jaquez served as Lead Design Architect for the expansion of the third tower.
