PCI Award Winner - Mercy Health West Hospital

Mercy Health West Hospital in Cincinnati, OH has been recognized as the Best Healthcare/Medical Building for the 2016 PCI Design Awards. Designed by AECOM, the blue-to-green color palette  incorporates the colors found in the hills and valleys in the Cincinnati region. Inspired by Ohio’s glazed pottery heritage, AECOM worked with High Concrete Group  to design the unique mosaic exterior featuring 11 different colors and 19 different shapes of glazed brick. High Concrete Group utilized the Versa-Brix®M system and 8’x8’ Metrobrick glazed from Architectural Polymers to create the precast façade.

The PCI Design Awards program, now in its 54th year, showcases innovation, design excellence and construction quality to further the precast concrete industry. The creative use of precast concrete for Mercy Health West Hospital resulted in a beautiful façade that offers improved thermal efficiencies, reduced long-term life-cycle costs and increased fire and storm resistance.

The hospital was also awarded a Citation/Unbuilt in Modern Healthcare Magazine’s annual design awards program. A team of distinguished healthcare executives and nationally recognized architects judged entries based on four criteria: design excellence, response to patient and family needs, functional utility, and flexibility of design.
