To offer the community access to leading-edge cancer, stem cell and surgical therapies , the client collaborated with doctors, scientists, nurses and engineers to build a world-class medical destination for patient-first care. Connected to Thornton Pavilion and located adjacent to a new research facility, the 509,500 sf, 245-bed Jacobs Medical Center is a translational medical center in the truest sense — facilitating the convergence of research, education and excellent clinical care.

Although one building, the 10-story hospital functions as three medical specialty centers— housing inpatient services for high-risk obstetrics and neonatal care, cancer care and advanced surgical care. The building’s overall curvilinear form was driven by the design of the patient units, but also by advanced modeling to capitalize on views, maximize daylight and minimize solar gain and glare. The geometry creates a subtle continuous flowing curve of the exterior — a dynamic form that changes as one passes around the building’s perimeter. Integrated into the exterior are a number of elevated gardens and terraces that bring nature up to the patient level.

The organic nature of the exterior translates to the interior to create an intentional and natural flow. The patient rooms are equipped with modern finishes, and an award-winning custom headwall seamlessly combines all necessary elements and equipment into one sculptural element. All patient rooms are also equipped with an iPad that can be operated from the bedside, empowering patients to customize their environments and securely view their treatment schedules and medical records.

Quote from Design Principal Mehrdad Yazdani

“Jacobs Medical Center was my first hospital project and I’m grateful to UC San Diego Health for the opportunity to work on this project and combine medical innovation with our studio’s architectural vision in such a dynamic building. The health center blurs the boundaries between research and healthcare delivery while elevating patient care experiences through creative technology integration, access to nature and beautiful interior and exterior spaces. Our team at CannonDesign is proud of the building and the positive impacts it will generate for patients and staff into the future.”

Quote from Brendan Kramer, Chief Administrative Officer of Operations at UC San Diego Health

Jacobs Medical Center was designed collaboratively with caregivers and builders to create a healing space that integrates groundbreaking research and discovery with world-class patient care. It was designed to connect to our other medical centers and research institutes and literally bridges the work of physicians, nurses and researchers to deliver leading-edge medicine and access to hundreds of clinical trials all in one footprint.

The organic nature of the exterior translates inside to create a natural flow. As much as possible, right angles were avoided, and the interior corridors replace typical right angles with curved corner conditions – allowing patient beds to effortlessly be pushed through the hallways, Image Courtesy © Christopher Barrett and Ethan Rohloff
