Forest Park Medical Center is a surgical specialty care hospital located in North Central San Antonio that provides high quality care while prioritizing patient comfort. Unique features include an expansive lobby with a water feature and patient rooms two to three times the size of those in traditional hospitals. The hospital contains 12 operating rooms, 2 Procedure Rooms, 30 private patient beds, 16 VIP patient beds, 6 ICU beds, an emergency room and full ancillary services. Though the hospital is privately owned, its design must still comply with all TDSHS requirements.
Cleary Zimmermann provided design services for the plumbing and medical gas systems for this facility, including the water softener system, domestic hot water generation for sinks and showers, and a full service kitchen. This project required extra coordination to integrate these systems into the high-quality architectural features. To align with the rooms’ purposefully elegant design, our team carefully considered the location and types of fixtures to be specified to ensure complete integration with the architectural concept. Forest Park Medical Center is seeking LEED® Certification.
