Inspired by five-star resorts, Forest Park Medical Center San Antonio is a physician-owned medical center and medical office building developed by the Neal Richards Group in San Antonio, Texas. The facilities have a hospitality-oriented focus to patient care and amenity offerings. Rich woods, metals, stone and glass throughout patient rooms and public areas create an immersive luxury experience. The facility includes 54 beds - including 16 VIP patient suites - 12 operating rooms, two procedure rooms, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging suites, and in-house pharmacy services. The four-story, 150,000-square-foot hospital reflects the South Texas vernacular, where the building is broken down into scalable pieces and has a more simplified structure as it rises to the sky. Interesting, locally-sourced materials bring the rugged, natural Hill Country palette into the site, rooting the building into the landscape while emphasizing a refined, sophisticated style. The upscale ambiance throughout extends to the large dining facility offering chef-prepared foods, a coffee bar, and peaceful outdoor spaces, including self-sustaining green roof systems. Patient rooms are designed with comfort, safety and privacy in mind. Plush banquettes adjacent to patient beds convert to queen-size beds for guests. Bathrooms are located directly behind the patient’s bed to reduce the risk of injury due to falls. Medical support technology, including patient monitoring devices and intravenous connection systems, are integrated into an attractive upholstered headboard and hidden when not in use. For additional privacy, VIP suites feature a separate room for family and guests equipped with a kitchenette, entertainment options and a sleeping area.
The new project facility included commercial kitchen facilities. To provide for reliable grease management and to protect the public sewer system, the Park GreaseTrooper® Grease Interceptor system was specified.
