Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC South Fayette Outpatient Center


Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Completion: 2014
Project Area: 60,000 ft2
Services: Architecture, Interior Design


In an effort to consolidate multiple outpatient services in Pittsburgh’s southern neighborhoods, UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh retained IKM to design a new four-story, 60,000 gross square foot outpatient care facility in South Fayette Township, Pennsylvania.

Visible from, the I-79 corridor, the project establishes a singular image for Children’s Hospitals by employing a unique geometric composition that responds to the building’s context and the multiple vantage points from which it is seen.

Public spaces and waiting areas are organized along the angular front of the building with generous expanses of glass providing natural daylight and views with clinical spaces organized efficiently in the rectangular building mass behind. The project consolidates a full spectrum of pediatric outpatient services into one facility including clinical spaces for General Medicine, Express Care, Neurology, ENT, Speech Therapy, Behavioral Health, Physical and Occupational Therapy and Radiology.
