Peak MOB at Parker Adventist Hospital Opens
It was a beautiful blue-sky day to celebrate with Parker Adventist Hospital and local officials for the ribbon-cutting of the new Peak Medical Office Building. Each floor of the four-story MOB specifically designed for various practitioners such as Oncology, OBGYN, Neurosurgery, Ear Nose and Throat, and Gastroenterology specialists among others. Nurse workstations and staff break rooms are strategically located throughout the building to take advantage of daylighting and to provide respite and spaces for collaboration.
Parker Adventist Hospital MOB Celebrates Topping Out
The Parker Adventist Hospital MOB recently celebrated its topping out. The construction team, client representatives, and design team members, including Kevin Gould, RTA Architect’s principal in charge and Dr. Howard Ellis of MED Development were on site to sign the beam and unfurl the flag. The building will accommodate multiple medical practices and expanded services for the Parker community.
The project is slated for completion in 2021. Learn more here
RTA Healthcare Architects double surgical capacity at Parker Adventist Hospital
From the exterior, it is impossible to see the change. The RTA Healthcare Design Team created seamless integration between old and new facility at Parker Adventist Hospital and doubled functional capacity.
The $20 million OR/OB expansion project at Parker Adventist Hospital includes 34,000 sq. ft. of new construction and 5,000 sq. ft. of renovation. Five new operating rooms were added to the existing second floor OR suite, along with an additional Patient Acute Care Unit and support space. This addition was made possible by building atop the existing first floor Imaging and Emergency Departments. Above the existing BirthPlace/Obstetrics and Pharmacy, a new 3rd floor level was added for the Obstetrics department. Ten new post-partum beds were added along with a new well-baby nursery and support space. In addition, the existing Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is being renovated and a new recovery room added for C-Section patients. All existing facilities were kept fully operational throughout construction. John Hoelscher, Principal (AIA, ACHA) was most pleased with the way the project allowed for hospital operations to proceed uninterrupted. He explains, "We were able to build on top of the Emergency Rooms without disrupting activity below."
This project was opened in the winter of 2010 and according to Hoelscher, who recently spoke in Chicago at the 2011 Healthcare Facilities Symposium, the new additions were executed so cleanly it "looks like it was there from the beginning."
RTA Critical Care Unit Design
Recently one of RTA's Critical Care Unit designs was included in a submittal for an CCU Citation Award for Best CCU Design of the year.
Centura Health Colorado chose RTA to design the Critical Care Unit at Parker Adventist Hospital in Parker, Colorado. The newly completed CCU is a stand-out project because it demonstrates unique design goals and criteria.
GOAL: The construction of a Critical Care Unit using proven evidence based design concepts that integrate the organization's core values: compassion, respect, integrity, spirituality, stewardship, imagination, and excellence.

- Commitment to creating a healing environment
