St. Barnabas Medical Center Cooperman Family Pavilion
Livingston, NJ / 241,000 SF
Saint Barnabas Medical Center, an affiliate of RWJBarnabas Health, selected Francis Cauffman to design a new five-story soaring addition to expand its high-quality clinical care and medical services. The Cooperman Family Pavilion, with its towering glass entrance, is the new point of entry for patients and visitors. The pavilion encompasses 114 new private, single-patient rooms, an expanded NICU, outpaitent diagnostic services, a central registration area and same-day surgery suite. Francis Cauffman designed the pavilion to include amenities and elements that lower risk of falls, decrease noise, increase natural lighting, increase access to patients and provide more welcoming home-like environments conducive to healing and recovery. The resulting expansion is a beautiful, natural light-infused building that reflects evidence-based approaches to promote healing and improve care. The collaborative project also provides Saint Barnabas Medical Center with the right amenities, structures and state-of-the-art technologies.
