Middlesex Hospital

Shoreline Medical Center

Location: Westbrook, CT
Project Completed: 2014
Size: 80,000 SF

SLAM’s design of the new Middlesex Hospital Shoreline Medical Center represents a rebirth of a beloved existing facility that has provided emergency care and outpatient services to the shoreline community of CT since 1975. Having outgrown its previous location, the new center addresses not only projected growth and new technologies. It establishes a new environment that can fully support patient care goals.

The freestanding facility features a 24 bed ED; expanded Radiology with dedicated Women’s Imaging, state-of-the-art Lab, Cancer Center with Infusion and a LINAC, and a Primary Care Practice; carefully arranged to enhance the delivery of the great service the Center is known for. To address a significant geriatric population, a closely coordinated site and building planning effort incorporates senior-friendly access and amenities.

Situated immediately along I-95, this project benefits from much greater visibility, providing a unique branding opportunity and convenient access for patients. A distinctive architecture, derived from a blend of elements established at the Main Hospital Campus (brick panels, pre-cast concrete banding) and local shoreline influences (natural stone, sea glass, native planting) defines the new center and reinforces an identifiable, system-wide aesthetic.

Working in partnership with Middlesex Hospital and Whiting Turner, SLAM dispensed with a traditional project approach to pursue a “Design Assist” methodology allowing for the cost-effective delivery of the new Center. Cost savings realized early in the project resulted in the inclusion of a 25,000 SF second floor shell space that SLAM fit-out for a physician’s practice and new oncology center.
