Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas
Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion
Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas needed a new building to accommodate its growing demand for capacity. P2S helped design the new $94 million, 72,000 SF Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion (CCP) and central plant. In line with the Hospital’s focus on future development, the design called for constant re-assessment and forward-thinking considerations about the needs of the community in the next 50-100 years. The 2-story CCP includes 26 treatment rooms, a 36-bed medical surgery nursing unit, and airborne infection isolation rooms.
The new central plant was designed with future expansion in mind, including massive chiller capacity, a new 12KV utility service, and an emergency generator for the future Acute Care Building (ACB). The ACB, another P2S project at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, is expected to be completed in 2025.
The CCP consists of a new emergency department, procedure rooms, and med-surge patient beds. The future ACB will include operating rooms, radiology, sterile processing, and other acute care services.
The Central Utility Plant was designed to account for medical campus expansion with chiller capacity, new 12kV utility service, and an emergency generator system for the ACB. We produced the construction documents using 3-D Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. It includes new high-efficiency chillers with variable frequency drives (VFD), variable primary pumping, cooling towers with VFDs, new direct digital control systems, dual feed electrical service, emergency generators, bulk oxygen storage, medical vacuum, medical air, NO2 and nitrogen, heating hot water boilers, with heat exchangers for the new domestic hot water, SPC-5 requirements of waste holding and water storage and a water softening system.
