Session Title: 10-year master plan case study: Full implementation delivers a modern academic healthcare campus
Presentation: Monday, October 21, 2:25pm — 3:20pm | Tuesday, October 22, 1:45pm — 2:40pm
View of the 1960s Medical Center and Crescent
The Clinical Quadrangle was completed in early 2013; the Cancer Institute is on the right, the Children’s Hospital on the left; the Main Entrance lobby is in the center.
Following a campus master plan in 2002, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center embarked on a series of individual projects that would result in the largest expansion ever undertaken by the medical center since the teaching hospital opened its doors in the 1960’s. Ten years later, the plan reached full implementation. Two major new clinical facilities, a 2,200 parking garage, renovation of several clinical departments, campus-wide infrastructure upgrades, 30 acres of new site development and a new main lobby for the medical center were built during a decade-long, continuous effort. The result: a medical campus is transformed; an institution is rebranded.
This session dissects the fully implemented 10-year master plan for the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and identifies key decisions that transformed a 1960’s pastoral campus into a modern, poised-for-growth world-class academic healthcare institution. Session leaders examine critical components of the master plan and reveal lessons learned that can be applied to planning processes at suburban campuses or dense urban mega structure sites. They profile growth and density targets, physical connectivity options, resource-sharing strategies, stress on infrastructure, and institutional identity. They highlight collaboration solutions for medical staff, researchers, medical students, patients and their families.
