William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, Dallas, Texas

Faithful+Gould provided schedule support services to UTSW for the new 1.3 million square foot William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

The new hospital's unique "W" shape design is an example of "form follows fuction". The "W" shape allows each floor's 64 single rooms to to become two 32-room wards or four 16-room wards for research or treatment purposes. It provides hospital staff, patients and visitors closer interaction and better sight lines with shorter hallways. It also protects patients from infections, exposure and noise.

  • 460 single-patient rooms

  • 24 surgical suites
  • 12 interventional suites
  • 72 adult ICU rooms
