The goal of St. Vincent Fishers Hospital was to create a highly reliable and efficient ministry with quality accommodations and a caring environment operating in a spirit of love, holistic healing, and outreach to others.
BSA LifeStructures worked on the planning and design for a phased expansion to the St. Vincent Fishers Campus. This expansion helps accommodate the growing healthcare needs for the Town of Fishers, which at the time of construction was considered one of the fastest growing communities in the country. It was the desire of St. Vincent to have a hospital that met the requirements of a LEED Certified facility. Sustainable design measures were implemented in how the building was sited and what landscaping was used, and throughout the design impacting the exterior skin, interior finishes and mechanical systems of the building. St. Vincent Fishers is the first hospital in Indiana to be awarded the USGBC’s LEED for healthcare designation.
Site and landscape features of St. Vincent Fishers Hospital features a healing garden with water feature, pergola, sound attenuating site wall, and outdoor seating linking with cafeteria. A 1.34-acre foot underground detention system is also accompanied by stormwater quality treatment units. The style of the landscaping is native to the area. Fuel efficient vehicle parking, bicycle racks and changing facilities were also added to encourage more sustainable commuting options.
