Overview

The new Weed Army Community Hospital is a replacement for a 51-year-old medical facility that had become inefficient and outdated for modern standards. The four-story hospital is 60 percent larger than the previous facility, providing much-needed space to better meet the needs of soldiers and their families. It features two clinic wings with 55 exam rooms, 15 beds, an emergency department, a helipad and an ambulance shelter.

Features

The hospital is the third LEED Platinum hospital in the world and also the first net-zero energy, carbon-neutral hospital in the country. Structural integrity is met by composite structural steel beams supporting a composite metal deck and concrete fill. The exterior walls consist of sturdy precast wall panels and curtain walls. The lateral load resisting system has special moment resisting frames for the relatively high seismic region in California.
