Building on Scripps Health’s legacy, the new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute in La Jolla, Calif., is conceived to be the region’s largest and most advanced center dedicated to cardiovascular care. The 383,000-square-foot tower, located on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, was designed by HOK in support of Scripps’ mission. Scripps marked the institute’s grand opening on Feb. 26, and began moving patients into the tower on March 8.

“The new facility is the successful result of an extraordinary team effort,” said Alicia Wachtel, project director based in HOK’s Los Angeles office. “Our team worked closely with Scripps administrators, facilities, design and construction staff, and clinicians to create an advanced care center that enables best practices while introducing significant innovations in patient-centered care.”

The Prebys Cardiovascular Institute builds on a legacy of Scripps advancements in pioneering surgical procedures, landmark studies, genomic medicine and wireless technology to provide the most innovative treatment options to patients with cardiovascular disease.

“The completion of Prebys Cardiovascular Institute is a milestone for Scripps and sets the bar for specialized heart care facilities across the country,” said Bruce Rainey, Scripps Health Corporate vice president of construction and facilities. “The state-of-the-art center for heart care incorporates the highest construction standards and most advanced design principles, which benefit patients and caregivers.”

HOK’s design team created a physical environment that embodies the mission and vision of Scripps with features that support the delivery of care, patient safety, staff efficiency, productivity and functional flexibility.

The exterior composition of brick, glass and metal panels respects the aesthetic of the surrounding campus buildings. Stacked brick and punched windows lining the north and west facades relate to the La Jolla campus and its architectural character. The curved glass curtain wall on the southeast delivers a message of transparency to the community. Generous daylight on patient floors streams through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

“Working within the context of the Scripps campus, we reinterpreted the campus’ materials into a new language of forms, patterns and details with a view to the future,” said Ernest Cirangle, FAIA, LEED AP, design principal for HOK’s Los Angeles office. “The contemporary design announces the program with distinct, readable elements. It’s a forward-looking building that supports Scripps’ commitment of bringing together people and technologies in one center to revolutionize heart care.”

The seven-story, 167-bed hospital includes 59 intensive care beds, four operating rooms, two hybrid operating rooms, three cardiac catheterization labs and an electrophysiology lab connected to centralized research labs, and a center for graduate education. Interior spaces support advanced medical treatment, patient care, research, clinical trials and graduate medical education within an environment supportive of patient and family-centered care.

The opening of the Prebys Cardiovascular Institute represents the first phase of a master plan that is transforming the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus. The team included McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. as general contractor and Jacobs Project Management Co. as construction manager.
