Healthcare Design Showcase Features 2 Layton Projects
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (September 8, 2017) – The Layton-built Diamond Head Tower at Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children in Honolulu was recently named a finalist in the 2017 Healthcare Design Showcase by Healthcare Design magazine. The showcase is now in its 17th year and is a coveted award for architects and interior designers. The magazine praised the new tower, designed by HDR, for its "new scale and new symbolic gravitas it its role of protecting and nurturing new life." The new neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) added 24 beds, and the pedicatric intensive care unit (PICU) tripled in size to 26 beds. The magazine also called out the tower's use of indigenous materials and imagery that pays homage to KMCWC's island heritage.
In the same issue, Healthcare Design featured Jordan Valley Cancer Center in West Jordan, Utah. Designed by TSA Architects, JVCC is praised for its stunning design based on the healing elements of nature and for its elegant wayfinding landmarks.
Congratulations to HDR and TSA Architects.
