The Sue and Bill Gross Women’s Pavilion at Hoag Hospital focuses on ambulatory surgery and women’s healthcare needs in all stages of life. The Pavilion sits on the confined Hoag Hospital site adjacent to the older Tower. The two, Pavilion and Tower, sit within the campus surrounded by older one and two level buildings that required reorganization as the Pavilion came on line. The TAYLOR designed hospitality and café project organizes and provides a main patient and visitor corridor between the Pavilion and the existing tower, while providing amenities along the way.
This renovation is intended to take on the character of a mall leading the public from one anchor to the next. The patient and visitor experience is entirely interior, however the design draws inspiration from the ocean front community culture. Views to the Newport Harbor and Pacific Ocean are a few steps outside the doors. The first floor hospitality areas, by design, are intended to have the warmth and comfort of a living room; understated and elegant. A health resource center, café and long term waiting areas are provided. The finishes, colors, textures and furnishings are selected to reinforce peace and relaxation, a respite from the stress of the medical center. The colors and textures reflect Hoag’s location; with deep blues of the ocean, warm sand colored stone with embedded fossils and the teak wood tones of sailing yachts.
In her role as designer and project architect Ms. Mabus was responsible for the conception, development and implementation of this award winning project while employed by TAYLOR.
