WOMAN’S HOSPITAL CAMPUS
The new Woman’s Hospital campus is comprised of a 300-bed, 520,000 square-foot hospital as well as 260,000 square-foot medical office buildings on 85 acres in southeast Baton Rouge. Dana Brown & Associates designed the over 30 acres of open green space, including over five acres of bioswales, an outdoor dining plaza, and a 1.25-mile walking and running trail around the lake. DBA designed comprehensive stormwater management for the campus focusing on collecting, filtering, and redistributing rainfall from large parking areas and building rooftops to the large ponds that are visible from all birthing rooms. This comprehensive approach created a campus that reconnects patients, visitors, and hospital staff with natural systems that provides regenerative, quiet, and calming experiences from the moment the site is entered.
