Description: The construction of Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies was an important stepping stone for both the Orlando office and Robins & Morton as a whole. This project included a new 406,298-square-foot women’s and babies hospital. The new facility is 11-stories and has 273 patient beds, 30 labor and delivery rooms, a surgical unit, a post anesthesia care unit, and a fetal diagnostic care center. The unique design of the hospital featured three separate cylindrical wings of varying levels and connected to the existing Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), the fourth largest in the country, is designed to provide the highest level of care for high-risk newborns. On the same campus, The Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children expansion included adding 9,000 square feet of mechanical space on the fourth floor, over 35,000 square feet of shell space on the second and third floors and a new emergency department trauma center on the first floor. Robins & Morton recently completed the build-out 30,000 square feet within Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies and adding 30 additional NICU beds. This addition makes the Winnie Palmer NICU the largest in the United States.
