The Jamaica Hospital Medical Center East Addition

Pediatrics Emergency and New Birthing Center, Jamaica, NY

RBSD provided full-service design for an addition to the east side of The Jamaica Hospital Medical Center that provided expansions to the Pediatric Emergency Department (15,800 square feet), a new lobby, a total of 10 new labor and delivery rooms, and converted four existing traditional rooms into labor and delivery rooms. The expansion was accomplished in a “bump-out” addition that wraps around the existing delivery facilities, creating a new protected canopy for the main hospital entrance two floors below. The layout ingeniously ties into the existing circulation system to create an island of relative quiet for the unit.
