In order to keep up with patient demand, The University of Kansas Hospital built a new seven-story patient tower located just northeast of the existing hospital buildings. The new tower includes 92 beds, 12 operating rooms, and will house two of the fastest-growing specialty areas at the hospital: neuroscience and surgical oncology. Additionally, the new tower will include imaging, laboratory, pharmacy services, and public amenities to support its patients, families, and staff.
NV5 was commissioned to coordinate an overall master planning effort which resulted in the Cambridge North Patient Tower. Acting as the Owner’s Project Manager, this project is the first phase of construction for a complete replacement of the original hospital that was constructed in the 1970s.
