To expedite bringing services online, the program for the facility will be constructed in phases to allow operation to begin.
The facility’s program is arranged into a set of courtyard buildings. Each building focuses on a specific aspect of the facility and connects to corresponding programs visually and physically via covered walkways and bridges. With a unique and comprehensive consideration of flow and function in every aspect of care, the patient experience at IPH will enjoy unparalleled in ease and comfort.
