Baptist Hospital Campus

Baptist Hospital Campus

The new $636 Million Baptist Hospital Campus provides a 264-bed hospital as well as a health center that offers multi-specialty services such as oncology, cardiology, outpatient imaging and more. The campus is the largest and most expensive healthcare facility ever built in Northwest Florida.

The hospital campus spans 57 acres and offers plenty of land for future growth. It includes a 10-story main hospital, the 178,000-square-foot six-story Bear Family Foundation Health Center and a 23,000-square-foot central energy plant.  

GATE Precast collaborated with Gresham Smith and Brasfield & Gorrie to meet the demands of a compressed schedule offering multiple facade types and architectural finishes that complement the overall design that blends the architecture and interior design seamlessly together with materials like terra-cotta, wood, bronze and terrazzo. 

The main hospital and health center towers feature GateLite, a thin architectural façade system, finished and unitized with structural glazing and insulation for a complete thermal, vapor and air barrier. GateLite reduces enclosure time and jobsite disruption by eliminating traditional trades from the site. 

The podiums for each tower are clad with 6” traditional architectural precast panels and the CEP panels are pre-insulated. The overall precast façade features simulated terracotta accents and a GateStone finish, which creates varying shades of color and a random appearance within the panels, lending depth and a timeless appearance. 

The owner desired a design for its new campus that would be resilient and sustainable, improve operational efficiency and enhance the human experience.  

Architectural precast façade systems were selected as the best material to represent the design narrative.
