FBT Architects teamed with HDR to design this new 96-bed, adult acute care replacement hospital located on the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque. The new hospital contains an emergency operations center and the ability to maintain operations and is self-sustaining for 72 hours. The project includes a 7-story 1,500 car parking structure and 36,000 sf Central Utility Plant.

Critical elements include:

  • Four 24-Bed Intensive Care Units
  • Adult Emergency Department
  • Interventional Platform consisting of 18 Operating Rooms
  • Endoscopy & Pulmonary Department
  • 4 Cath Labs
  • 6 IR Suites and Perioperative Suite (72 PACU/Prep/Recovery)
  • Imaging Department
  • Satellite Pharmacy
  • Inpatient Imaging
  • Hospital Support Services

The overarching goal of the development plan is to allow the University of New Mexico Hospitals to reimagine patient care in New Mexico and provide advanced healthcare, teaching, research, and community outreach to the citizens of New Mexico through a new adult acute care replacement hospital. The existing hospital will be transitioned to women’s and children’s services.
