Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Wins DBIA National Award of Excellence

The new Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Patient Tower, located in Valencia, California, has won the Design-Build Institute of America’s National Award of Excellence in the Healthcare Facilities category. The project was selected from four National Award of Merit winners to win the overall Healthcare category at the recent national DBIA Awards Ceremony.  The Design-Build team consisted of Bernards and HMC Architects.

Strategically located among three of the campus’ existing buildings, the new tower faced a challenging fit. The Design-Build team created an innovative solution, which pulled its foundation away from existing buildings and provided more square footage by cantilevering C-section rooms over an existing building. Considered the project’s “fifth wall,” the outdoor environment was integrated into the interior design with large windows and a basement sunken courtyard to decrease anxiety and encourage healing.

“From rapid response COVID-19 medical units to delivering essential infrastructure that strengthens our nation, Design-Build continues to play a vital role in building our communities. This year’s Design-Build Project/Team Award winners are the best examples of how the power of collaboration and innovation is transforming the way we design and build,” said Lisa Washington, CAE, DBIA executive director and CEO.
