William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas

Profile:The 12-floor, 460-bed, state-of-the-art hospital is the largest facility on the UTSWMC campus. Its distinctive W-shape permits closer interaction between nurses and patients and promotes collaboration by co-locating related medical specialties vertically. Shorter hallways and color-coding make navigation easier. Every aspect of the hospital's design is intended to reinforce exemplary patient care, fully integrated with cutting-edge research capabilities and training opportunities. Examples of the advanced technology: videoconferencing in patient rooms (where x-rays, CT scans and MRIs can be viewed), medical staff's secure mobile devices with EMR tracking, interactive whiteboards in conference areas on every floor, and combination imaging-operating rooms with connected labs.
