Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital Unveils New Expansion Tower

Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital in California recently celebrated the completion of a new 58,000-square-foot hospital expansion tower, designed by Stantec. This first phase of SSRRH’s major expansion and renovation project will enhance access to acute hospital services to meet Northern California’s growing needs well into the 21st century.

The tower expansion adds significant space to help support the health and healing of patients across multiple departments and services.

Highlights include:

  • A new three-story wing to the east side of the existing hospital that includes an additional 40 licensed private-room beds, one operating room (a second one shelled), three new endoscopy rooms, a new outpatient care unit to replace the existing one, and specialized conference room spaces for nurse, clinician and patient learning.
  • Prefabricated exterior system.
    • The new facility seamlessly blends prefab elements with nonprefab components, setting a standard sure to be replicated in other acute hospital facilities nationwide.
  • Leveraging the hospital’s recently installed photovoltaic panels, the expansion builds on SSRRH’s commitment to energy independence and is targeting LEED Version 2.2 Verification Treatment. The facility design features natural lighting throughout and sweeping views of the surrounding community.

The second phase of the project — an expansion of the hospital’s emergency department and support services — is underway, with an expected completion date of fall 2022. This final project phase includes the renovation of approximately 10,000 square feet in the existing hospital to add 21 emergency department exam rooms, enhanced dietary service, an expanded lab/blood bank and the renovation of a central processing unit.

Stantec is helping to deliver the multiphase project through an Integrated Project Delivery approach, alongside general contractor, HerreroBoldt.

Stantec’s design services for the SSRRH project include architecture; interiors; mechanical, electrical, and plumbing; landscape; acoustics; IT services; and sustainability.
