PIH Health Hospital

Whittier, CA

PIH Health Hospital, a 550-bed community medical facility, has evolved as a result of a 25-year master plan developed by RBB Architects. Over the span of the master plan build-out, RBB planned and designed three patient towers.

The campus site, which was constrained by surrounding development, required careful planning and phasing in order to relocate and replace existing functions and construct new towers that would replace outdated buildings. The Perry Pavilion provided Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Imaging Department, and Emergency Department in 140,000 SF. The Shannon Tower included 144 beds and critical hospital services in 175,000 SF. The Plaza Tower, included 48 critical care beds, 64 medical/ surgical beds, 11 surgical suites and procedure rooms in 235,000 SF. Recently, RBB completed a four-story bridge that links the hospital towers, as well as a landscaped garden area for the enjoyment of patients, their families, and employees.

Leading the trend towards locating selected patient services outside hospital boundaries, PIH Health established outpatient surgery, breast health services, oncology radiation, outpatient imaging, and endoscopy services in adjacent, freestanding medical buildings. The result is a full-service medical complex that accommodates the medical needs of the community.
