A reimagined psych unit.
A major renovation takes adaptive reuse to a new level.
Integrated design that advances women’s healthcare.
For Methodist Hospital of Southern California, HED transformed a former psychiatric unit into a welcoming, fully-functional gynecology / oncology clinic.
In partnership with patients, care providers, administration and other stakeholders, we ensured that the new clinic would fully support the well-being of those who use it. Our fully integrated design work included a feasibility study, medical planning, construction administration, artwork selection, signage consulting and fixture, furniture and equipment (FF&E) provision.
Following the completion of Phase 1 work, the new clinic houses two procedure rooms, a laboratory, administration and auxiliary offices, and utility space. A redesigned courtyard greets patients upon arrival and provides a seamless transition to the interior, where rich earth tones and unique textures combine to create a calming, visually engaging environment.
A dramatic departure from the original space, Methodist Hospital of Southern California’s new gynecology / oncology clinic not only successfully adapted a former psychiatric unit—it will also impact, enhance and advance the experience of care for thousands of women today, and in years to come.
