Cincinnati, OH | 745,000 SF
Throughout our 30-year history together, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and GBBN have continued to surface unique solutions that positively impact pediatric health and family well-being, propel medical research, and support care teams to do their best work. They know, as we do, that success is built on coordinating and executing thousands of details.
...success is built on coordinating and executing thousands of details.
From planning and workshopping small moments, to adopting innovative processes, to the chess game of moving physical spaces, we are an agile and flexible design partner as Cincinnati Children’s grows and treats the nation’s (and often the world’s) sickest children.
GBBN partnered with ZGF Architects (Design Architect/Architect of Record) on the Critical Care Building. The project adds 225 beds, an expanded emergency department, specialized operating rooms, flexible behavioral and medical treatment spaces, a larger pharmacy, consolidated lab space, a rooftop heliport, enhanced clinical workspace, and outdoor gardens and terraces for families and staff. This expansion connects seamlessly to Cincinnati Children’s existing inpatient critical care facilities and increases their capabilities to provide world class pediatric care.
Of the thousands of details upon which their new Critical Care Building is built, many began their evolution in different projects throughout GBBN’s longstanding partnership with Cincinnati Children’s. As a result, we’ve helped them advance how they diagnose and treat patients in their new Critical Care Building, the biggest project they’ve ever undertaken.
