The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center, opened in September 2015, is a new model for integrated, patient-centered orthopedic care. Growing out of an SOM master plan for the hospital’s Cincinnati campus, the 381,000-square-foot, seven-story facility houses approximately 90 inpatient rooms and 12 surgical suites. The building is filled with natural light and flexible semi-public spaces offer a place of respite for caregivers and families. Patient rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows and are organized and furnished to provide a soothing environment to patients and their families. Decentralized nursing desks, located next to patient rooms, place caregivers closer to those they serve and keep the patient floor quiet by dispersing activity.

The exterior—composed of red brick and limestone— references the vernacular architecture of the surrounding neighborhood and the massing incorporates a projected “lantern” that accents the main entrance, reinterpreting the campus’ historic cupola. A master plan for the site clarified circulation, and a new north-south alignment enabled future expansion of the campus to the south.
