Diamond Children’s Medical Center at University Medical Center

Best Medical Project 2011: University Medical Center, KitchellDeveloper: University Medical Center
Contractor: Kitchell
Architect: NTD Architects
Size: 100,000 SF
Location: 1501 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson
Completed: September 2010

The Diamond Children’s Medical Center at UMC in Tucson is a “family centered” pediatric facility that serves young patients throughout southern Arizona. Providing construction services on an existing campus was a challenge, but Kitchell worked closely with various entities, and the interactions became the basis of work plans that evolved over time. The design of the hospital accommodates families’ physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. Following designs of NTD Architecture, Kitchell built 36 NICU beds, 20 PICU private rooms, and a pediatric emergency department, to name a few components. There are also murals, a canopy, a large telescope and stage, and children’s library.
