On June 26th, 2019, Baptist Health Care formally announced the planning, construction, and opening of a new state-of-the-art hospital in Pensacola, Florida; a $650 million project, located on a 57-acre campus, to include the 10-story, 264-bed Baptist Hospital, the six-story, 178,000-square-foot Bear Family Foundation Health Center, and the 48,000-square-foot Baptist Behavioral Health Unit.
Fast forward to September 2023, and Pensacola’s Baptist Health Care Brent Lane campus is officially open.
Business Interiors is proud to have worked with Baptist Health Care, Gresham Smith, and Meadows and Ohly on this outstanding project. BI was tasked with providing solutions for all patient-facing clinical areas. The scope included the hospital’s main lobby, waiting areas, patient rooms, lab, pharmacy, and behavioral health areas.
Of the 264 patient beds, 54 are in the intensive care unit, 198 are medical/surgical, and there are 12 labor and delivery suites. Patient rooms are spacious, private, and designed to be comfortable for family and visitors. The Behavioral Health Unit maintains 72 beds for adults and children needing inpatient treatment. The Bear Family Foundation Health Center is home to the Baptist Cancer Institute, Baptist Heart & Vascular Institute, Baptist Medical Group, and other offices.
The entire campus is designed to be patient-first, with a focus on patient and visitor comfort. Equal focus was placed on hospital staff space utilization, response time, and efficiency, allowing for a healthy, modern healthcare space. The hospital serves Escambia County and the surrounding area and is one of the most modern hospital campuses in the U.S.
