Work Completed on New 1 msf Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton


Construction has been completed on the new 1 msf (total campus) Naval Hospital at the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The project, completed six months ahead of schedule and more than $100 mil under budget, was built by a joint venture design-build team of Clark Construction Group LLC, and McCarthy Building Companies Inc.

HKS Architects Inc, Los Angeles, was the project architect-of-record, while HDR Architecture Inc, San Diego, served as the architectural designer for the new hospital. Young+Co Inc of San Diego, HDR Architects and HKS Architects collaborated on the interior design.

"The replacement hospital is a facility 'catch-up' for the progress of modern medicine, since the last facility was built in the early 1970s,” said Capt. Mark A. Kobelja, commanding officer of the Naval Hospital Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. “The new facility utilizes evidence-based design to enhance healing for patients, as well as efficient and effective design to conserve water and energy, protect from earthquakes and optimize the work environment for staff. Designed as a like-for-like replacement of existing capabilities, the new facility will greatly enhance those capabilities with the newest facility and equipment technologies. Add in the ocean view, large windows, greenery and pleasing finishes and textures throughout, and it's little wonder our staff and patients are ready to move in.”

Situated on a 70-acre site near the south entrance to the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, the new Naval Hospital will employ a staff of around 1,100 physicians, nurses and support personnel who will serve around 70,000 active-duty and veteran members of the military and their families.

Providing emergency, primary, intensive and specialty care, the new hospital will have 96 outpatient procedure rooms, 205 exam rooms, ancillary departments, support spaces and 54 patient rooms accommodating up to 60 beds for non-ambulatory patients who require stays in excess of 24 hours. Reflecting the mostly young military population it serves, the hospital will also have eight labor and delivery rooms, together with 16 post-partum suites. Outpatient care alone is expected to reach around 2,000 visits per day.

The hospital is expected to earn LEED Gold Certification and features numerous sustainable elements, most notably an energy system that will outperform baseline standards by 30 percent.

The new Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital is replacing an older facility built in 1974 near Lake O’Neil that no longer complies with current seismic, anti-terrorism, and general force protection standards for hospitals, and will instead be used for administrative offices and storage. Patients from the existing hospital will be transferred to the new hospital in mid-December. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 31st.

The scope of work by the JV team also included construction of a central utilities plant with 3,100 tons of cooling and redundant utility systems to allow the hospital to remain independently and fully functional for three days in the event of a power outage. It also included construction of a 1,500-space parking structure and 1,000-space surface parking area, which will double the parking capacity of the existing hospital.

The design goal was to create a world-class, timeless, landmark facility fitting of the prominent site overlooking the Pacific Ocean that would reflect the timeless values of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps while accommodating the latest in evidence-based design best practices in healthcare services. Another primary goal was to achieve LEED Gold Certification – an ambitious aspiration for a state-of-the-art hospital that operates around the clock.

Sustainable design features include green roofs, healing gardens, and an atrium open to the sky. The building’s energy performance is 30 percent better than baseline standards set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). The team went above and beyond efforts needed to achieve all five Innovation in Design credits by using more than 20 percent recycled content, reducing water usage by more than 50 percent, restoring vegetative open space that is more than twice the footprint of the building, and implementing a campus-wide education program that highlights the hospital’s sustainability.

Additional project partners on the Camp Pendleton Naval Replacement Hospital project included KPFF Consulting Engineers, San Diego, structural engineer; TMAD Taylor and Gaines, San Diego, mechanical engineer; exp., San Diego, electrical engineer; Flores Lund Consultants, San Diego, civil engineer; and The EcoLogic Studio, San Diego, sustainability consultant.
