Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley | Hospital Consolidation Plan

“Every building deserves the maximum amount of artistic exploration with a considered, deliberate approach. We seek to create spaces which impart feelings that you’re a participant in something exceptional, where function leads to calm, awe or inspiration. Our core values strive to convey that quality in every project we touch, from the modest to the extravagant.” ~Fredrick Franko, Director of Design

As part of the master plan team Hyman Hayes Associates met with various departments to determine existing space allocation, verified and documented the existing conditions and developed master plan layouts of the overall site, existing space program, and new work planned as part of the consolidation. For the implementation of the master plan Hyman Hayes Associates was responsible for projects at Benedictine Hospital as well as the construction administration services for the entire consolidation project.
