Located on a 70-acre site in southern California, the $450 million Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton provides healthcare services to Marines, their families, and area veterans. The Navy’s design objectives included creating a landmark facility adjacent to the main entrance to Camp Pendleton that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The world-class LEED® Gold-certified facility showcases the latest in evidence-based design best practices while creating an environment conducive to healing.
The new state-of-the-art 500,000-square-foot, multi-level hospital replaces an older facility and provides advanced outpatient services, 42 inpatient beds, nine operating rooms, an advanced care ICU, and a labor/delivery/recovery and postpartum maternity suites wing.
Completed in December 2013, the new facility was designed and constructed to comply with California’s seismic safety standards and showcases numerous innovative sustainable features in order to achieve its LEED Gold certification, such as green roofs, healing gardens and an atrium open to the sky. CertainTeed products used in the advanced sustainable design include AirRenew® M2Tech Extreme Abuse gypsum board, Unfaced Sustainable Insulation® (R-11 and R-19) and CertaPro® Commercial Sustainable Insulation® foil scrim kraft (R-22).
