Hampden Medical Center Wins ENR Mid-Atlantic Award of Merit

The Penn State Health (PSH), Hampden Medical Center has received an award of merit in the healthcare category in ENR’s Mid-Atlantic regional best projects competition.

The new 108-bed medical center will be PSH’s first greenfield community hospital operating remotely from the main campus of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. The architecture is inspired by the rolling hills carved by the Susquehanna river basin, using transparency, reflectivity, and rhythm of façade patterns to recall the beauty and physics of river geographies.

The project will exude a high level of care and the technology that PSH is known for combined with the convenience and neighborhood engagement of a community hospital. Our team implemented multiple strategies to achieve these goals with a focus on flexibility; the project implemented CannonDesign’s Universal Grid to provide maximum adaptability to accommodate new and evolving care models for the future.
