Centrally located in the heart of Oklahoma City, the OU Children's Physicians Facility was designed to serve as a hub for The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, OU Medical Center and the 28 additional health-related organizations that make up the Oklahoma Health Center campus. 
The primary design objective was to create a new formal entry for the Children's Hospital which required a comprehensive site redesign and resulted in a new identity for the hospital.
 
The $140 million project included four phases: 1 + 2) the new parking garage to the west of the atrium; 3) the 14-story Medical Office Building adjacent to the atrium; and 4) the construction of the $30 million atrium itself. 
PARKING: Taking advantage of the site topography, most of the three-level structure is located below grade. This made the view less obtrusive and allowed each level of the garage to be accessible from the street. The 1,200 space parking garage was built in two phases to allow onsite parking for patients and employees during the construction process.
MEDICAL OFFICE BUILDING: This facility provides a single, centralized location for patients and their families to visit doctors outside of the hospital setting. The scope of work on this phase of the project included design and construction for the 17 clinics and specialty services housed within the outpatient facility.
ATRIUM: The Atrium has become the gathering place within the Children's Hospital Complex. It is the front door to health and healing and is a comforting place for children seeking care. The design is iconic and whimsical and the interior, while a grand space, has nooks for quiet retreat. The rooftop garden is a place where a child's imagination can whisk them away from the realities of the hospital.
