Cardiovascular Center

Master Plan Implementation

St. Joseph’s Health | Syracuse, NY

The Cardiovascular Center was the result of a master plan conducted by the

Hospital with Beth Fritz, prior to joining Dwyer Architectural. Having a consistent design leader allowed for a seamless execution of the goals and lean practices that were established early on. The design team at worked closely with the hospital’s facilities department, administrative personnel, and numerous clinical teams to deliver a project that met the Hospital’s goals, schedule, and budget. This was a multi-phase, fast-paced, interior renovation project all within the footprint of an existing building and its associated structural limitations.

One of the most significant goals of the Center was to unite all separate  cardiovascular departments into one cohesive team to provide a single

destination for patients and their families, as well as consolidating important

clinical resources in one location.


The project included design and construction of a new invasive cardiology suite

with forty pre-operative/recovery patient bays, one hybrid operating room, two electrophysiology labs, three cardiac catheterization labs, a central waiting area, and all necessary clinical support.  A non-invasive cardiology suite was also designed as part of the project. The suite also included an outpatient clinic, four echocardiogram exam rooms, and three stress labs, but were not constructed.
