Thread: Norman Regional Healthplex expansion

  1. #1

    Default Norman Regional Healthplex expansion

    I just saw something pop up on my Facebook about Norman Regional Healthplex undergoing an expansion. There weren't any pictures of what it will look like. Does anyone have any pictures of this expansion?

    Drove by earlier today, they are moving right along, and have multiple cranes on site. This is a massive project.

    Just a couple of recent pics showing construction progress. One is of the parking garage and one of the actual hospital facilities addition. Quite a construction project, to say the least.

    Iíve been following the live cams of this project at inspirehealthok.com and itís been pretty impressive. Good to see Norman growing.

    I'm not a fan of them having obscured the hospital buildings from 75% of I-35 and most of Tecumseh with a giant parking garage. I'm a little shocked they have done this to be honest.

    It's a hospital. It's goal isn't to look pretty. Just my opinion. Not bashing.

    Remember, this is all to close the legacy Norman Regional location. So they, like any other hospital, have to abandon any masterplans and squeeze in what they can here. Honestly, I'm surprised they are building such small structures here. They're taking up valuable space that they may need in the future. They're just going to have to tear it down later to make room for the new "thing" in 10-15 years.

    What I can say is that at least there's a design aesthetic being used consistently. That's always a peve of mine with hospitals. They dont want the new "thing" to look dated, so they do it all new and make it not match the old in any possible way, turning it into a architects collection of what not to do. So props here that they are at least being consistent.

    I had not heard that. There is a plan to shut down the Porter Campus and move everything to the HealthPlex? Is that what you’re saying?

    The Porter campus is going to be largely behavioral health focused, but I think everything else is making the move to the new campus.
