Two distinct healthcare units – Outpatient Surgery and Outpatient Children’s Hospital Clinics – are united in this campus gateway building, the 21st-century descendant of Thomas Jefferson’s iconic rotunda. The design organizes 36 specialty clinics into interdisciplinary, multi-functional care neighborhoods.
Complementary clinics are conveniently collocated so that multiple caregivers can attend to patients in one place, rather than requiring patients to go from one clinic to another. The program features a “Main Street” of amenities; 40-foot-long interactive storytelling walls in each of the four upper-floor waiting rooms; and family activity areas.

Beacon of Hope
Light, color, environmental graphics and interactive features enhance the healthcare experience for children and their families at this leading-edge hospital. The child-focused facility uses static displays and interactive features to engage young patients with a storytelling theme that highlights classics of children’s literature including Charlotte’s Web, Curious George, and The Jungle Book. To simplify wayfinding for children and families, floors are organized with environmental graphics that tell the story of UVA and Charlottesville.
