In January 2017, Stantec began collaborating with UPMC Pinnacle on the development of their new Memorial campus, which was created around the new 130-bed replacement facility for the existing Memorial Hospital. Building upon the expanded bed capacity and anticipated growth for the region, the new York Ambulatory Care Building (York, Pa.) is co-located with the hospital to provide a more comprehensive range of health services on the new campus.

The new hospital provides a 260,000-sq.-ft., 6-story replacement facility for the existing hospital. The 130-bed facility houses all the necessary support functions for a freestanding hospital, including an ED, Surgical Services, Radiology, Central Sterile Processing, Lab, Pharmacy, Dietary Services, and CUP.

The 140,000-sq.-ft., 5-story ACB provides a platform for numerous clinical specialties, providing a more convenient patient experience and bringing more visits to the campus. At the core of the program is an emphasis on oncology and ambulatory surgery, which defines a duality of purpose and image for the building. Oncology services include an Infusion Center with rooftop garden, radiation oncology, and a Women’s Center for imaging and treatment. The ASC includes eight operating rooms, dedicated sterile processing, and 27 prep/recovery positions. Other programs include various specialty practices, a sleep lab, cardiac rehabilitation gym, and conference center.

Situated on more than 100 acres, the new campus provides access to outdoor gardens and walking trails, as well as room for future facilities to care for York residents.
