The new eight-story, 480,000-SF cancer hospital provides 192 additional private rooms, diagnostic and therapeutic oncology care, burn ICU, SICU to support ORs, BMTU, and general surgery beds, operating suite of 12 rooms and support areas, level-1 trauma center with helipad, an expandable central energy plant, site utility infrastructure and a 226,435-SF 548-space parking garage. Additionally, the new patient tower is connected to the existing hospital via an underground tunnel.
The goal for this project was to create a hospital that would be comfortable for patients and their families without compromising functionality. The design incorporates abundant natural light and intuitive wayfinding to ease patient and employee stress. To maximize clinical efficiency, mock-up treatment spaces were built in a nearby warehouse during the design process so nursing staff could test work scenarios and provide suggestions.
Skanska worked as an integrated team with the owner and architect to create a long-term expansion plan, and then designed and built this first phase of that plan. Operating on principles of shared risk, budgeting transparency, and collaborative problem-solving, the team delivered the new hospital in 36 months, nearly six months less than the traditional timetable for a project of this size and scope. The accelerated timeline allowed Shands HealthCare to save construction costs and expand treatment operations months earlier than a traditional process would have.
The UF Health Cancer Hospital achieved LEED® Gold certification, making it the first hospital in Florida to earn that designation.
