A new, 10-story, specialty hospital on the campus of UCSD, directly adjacent to Thornton Hospital. It will focus on three areas: maternity and infant care, cancer treatment and advanced surgery. The project will add 245 new beds and include a helicopter landing pad with direct access to all floors, garden-based design to maximize natural light as well as dedicated family areas on each bed floor. The site design yields itself to sustainable drainage solutions that protect the receiving stream bed to the south of the site. A new high efficiency central plant, which is Included in this project, will service the bed tower, in addition to future medical buildings and offices of the UCSD East Campus Master Plan. The central plant will be located offsite and across the main loop road from the new tower. A structural utility tunnel will house the critical hospital services that cross under the main road.
