2WR has completed over fifty projects with St. Francis Hospital since 2002. In 2007, this work earned 2WR the role of campus architect for the hospital. 2WR’s projects have included complete patient floor renovations, waiting rooms, staff lounges, data center, the boardroom, and various departments. 2WR worked with St. Francis to develop a new palette of materials that became the standard for future projects. 2WR also completed projects for St. Francis in satellite locations. Projects include a hyperbaric suite, geriatric psychiatric medical unit, hospice unit, and renovation to an Ob|Gyn office.
As typical with many hospitals, improvement of wayfinding and design continuity are priority. 2WR, in concert with the owner, employed a timeless design aesthetic within a standard palette materials and colors in effort to reinvent the overall feel of the facility. The overall design became tool to aesthetically link all the facilities together regardless of location or discipline.
