Frisco, Texas (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
BOKA Powell LLC, a Dallas-based architecture and design firm, has completed work on the Forest Park Medical Center at Frisco Square. The four-story, 141,500 sq. ft. full-service surgical hospital features VIP patient suites, an upmarket restaurant offering healthy choice cuisine, and an upscale ambiance, starting with a circular drive that leads to a grand lobby.
“The typical Forest Park Medical Center patient has high service expectations, and we wanted our design to respond accordingly. We gathered inspirational ideas by touring four and five-star resorts and spas around the country,” said Don Powell, principal of BOKA Powell. “We worked to emulate the richness, drama and lighting quality of what we saw, as our goal was to create a first-class environment where patients can heal most comfortably.”
The development includes 56,000 square feet of medical office space on two floors, over 34,000 square feet of retail space for restaurants and shops, and a 600-car parking structure. The hospital features 12 operating rooms, 40 patient rooms and 14 VIP patient suites with attached family areas.
“Every aspect of the hospital, from the stunning fountain and motor court at the entrance, to the grand lobby to the luxury patient rooms, provides the ambiance of a resort spa,” said Sean Kirton, project manager with BOKA Powell.
The team incorporated early 20th century building details with modern finishes to design the exterior, which celebrates the drama of the art deco period with an eclectic, contemporary style that complements Frisco Square’s urban character.
“This project sets a new standard for healthcare in the U.S.,” said Nick Summerville, chief operating officer of the Neal Richards Group, developer of the project. “It’s demonstrative of Forest Park Medical Center’s philosophy which delivers world-class healthcare in a hospitality-rich environment.”
