Healing Environment Principles are a Goal for the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center, Navy Medical Center

It’s no surprise that patients usually report negative experiences at hospitals or doctor’s offices due to institutional, sterile environments. Architects Mosher Drew and Reno Contracting believe that a visit to the doctor doesn’t have to be like that. The two firms are teaming up for design-build healthcare projects at the Navy Medical Center and the Sharp Rees-Stealy Memorial Hospital to provide exceptional healing environments for patients and families.

With big health care changes and an aging baby boomer population, it is more important than ever to create a space that promotes healing and well-being through design and aesthetics. We plan to optimize the site’s view, instill natural light, and create positive distractions in the form of artwork. Still, we will take the healing environment a step further and design an exceptional work atmosphere for health care workers. Our designs include plans to streamline the wayfinding between rooms and create opportunities for worker-patient interaction.

The project scope includes:

-General Surgery Area
-Wound and Vascular Clinic
-Pediatrics Department Renovation

SDSU University Towers Re-Imaged

We are excited to showcase the newly renovated & upgraded UNIVERSITY TOWERS at San Diego State University, located in San Diego, California.

Our mission: to develop a sense of place at the west side of the SDSU campus.

Newly renovated design at SDSU’s new UT by Architects Mosher Drew.

The 1960’s University Towers has been re-imaged and transformed into “UT” – an upscale, hip place to see and be seen.

The new UT is reinvigorated with open terraces, a front porch, and soft fluid forms to meet the needs and interests of current students. The more open environment is supplemented by an exhibition kitchen that opens to a lounge, dining, and grab & go retail to create an environment that encourages meet and greets and just hanging out.

“Inside and Out the New UT is a Must See Place to Be”
