Interior Work Will Create Exterior Activity

We’re busy preparing to remodel spaces we moved out of last spring, building a new catheterization lab for cardiac patients, adding a rooftop garden terrace atop level seven, constructing additional patient rooms on two empty floors in the forest zone and making a number of other improvements around the hospital.

Contractors will return to the hospital in May to complete these important projects within the new building. Although most of the work involves interior spaces, some activity will be visible on the exterior for the next few months.

Expect to see some trucks, shuttles carrying workers, temporary construction fencing and construction cranes. We’ll keep noise and any other disruptions to a minimum. Thanks for your patience while we complete this important work. If you have any questions, please call 206-987-8000.

Rooftop Terrace to Provide Beautiful Views and Fresh Air for Patients, Families, Visitors and Staff

Roof Top Garden - RenderingWork begins in early June on an eagerly awaited addition to the Forest zone – a rooftop terrace on level eight that offers patients, families, visitors and staff a peaceful place to get some fresh air, stretch their legs and enjoy the view.

The terrace is adjacent to the Cancer Care Unit and right outside the physical therapy gym. It will include a small shelter, a spyglass telescope, benches made from reclaimed wood, a walking path and lots of plants and shrubs and will be safely enclosed with see-through fencing. 

We expect the terrace to open by the end of summer 2014. We will post updates on the blog as they become available.
