With pitched roofs, a warm, earthy materials palette, and indoor/outdoor spaces including a café-style bistro and gardens, SmithGroupJJR’s design infuses this health complex with the traditional southern charm of Mississippi river country.
The replacement hospital is called “a quantum leap” forward for healthcare in Pearl River County. It responds to the integrated master plan the firm devised for the system’s flagship hospital in Hattiesburg and for this new, 60-bed satellite hospital and medical office building (MOB), planned to expand to 120 beds in the future.
Cost control is another achievement. Addressing budget concerns, the project team was able to reduce the overall budget by separating business occupancies from more expensive institutional hospital functions. Most support areas are centralized in the attached MOB and a separate logistics building.
A two-story atrium and a second-floor skywalk serve as a central, connecting entry for the hospital and the MOB.
