Tower Health

Reading HealthPlex for Advanced Surgical & Patient Care

The Reading HealthPlex is a 476,000 square foot surgical and inpatient tower that includes six patient-care levelsand consolidates campus-wide surgery into one building. With a mission of creating a positive patient experience, all 110,000 sf of the hospital’s surgical services are co-located to streamline the patient treatment process from check-in to pre-admission testing to procedure.

The new tower’s surgical services include 8 procedure rooms on the ground level and 24 operating rooms (ORs) on the lower level, six of which are hybrid-capable ORs. Constructed over a new operating room (OR) plinth, the tower houses 150 new private patient rooms with smart room technology and a second helipad. The Emergency Department (ED) is equipped with the latest in cardiac monitoring, invasive blood pressure monitoring, respiratory monitoring, and a state-of-the-art CAT scanner, making it one of the most technologically advanced and sophisticated surgical centers in the region. The building’s mechanical and electrical systems utilize leading-edge technology and include 25 all-aluminum construction air handlers with energy recover wheels. The facility also now features new generators and 100% redundant emergency power.

Incorporating the latest research on healing and stress reduction in hospitals, the new HealthPlex includes a vast network of green spaces accessible to patients, visitors, and staff. A private garden in the surgical waiting room, skylights in pre-op areas, and an 88,000 sf green roof provide patients with a healing environment. The massive green roof also serves to visually minimize the large footprint.

Our team successfully navigated the complexities of a tight, urban site in a continuously operating urban medical center to deliver this project on schedule and on budget while maintaining a safe and functional environment for medical staff, patients, visitors, and the community.
