Mount Sinai Medical Center in South Florida is ushering in a new era of patient care with the opening of the seven-story Skolnick Surgical Tower and 34,000-square-foot Hildebrandt Emergency Center on its main campus. The $275-million project combines highly advanced diagnostic technologies and treatments with a tranquil and healing environment, designed to enhance the patient, caregiver and visitor experience.
From luxurious private patient rooms with panoramic bay views and hybrid surgical suites designed to easily incorporate future technologies, to a carefully curated artwork collection, the new waterfront facility offers unparalleled patient care and experience. Mount Sinai, which serves as the only hospital on Miami Beach, has also been “resiliency fortified” to withstand sustained hurricane-force winds and rising water from storms.
The project is also a catalyst for the Mount Sinai Arts Program, a partnership in which custom-curated artwork will be displayed throughout the new facilities.
The surgical facility houses 12 integrated operating rooms with technology that promotes personalization for both patients and surgeons. These operating rooms allow for seamless communication with the control booth, pathology room and other operating rooms, and can broadcast audio and video to other locations, even internationally. In addition to the building’s two-story atrium and public courtyard, each of the 154 all-private patient rooms in the surgical center has a bay view.
The project team included CannonDesign and Robins & Morton.
