Columbia Doctors Midtown

To advance Columbia University Medical Center’s commitment to providing convenient, high-quality healthcare, CUMC relocated their flagship practice to Midtown Manhattan. The substantial program intentionally co-locates diverse services including an imaging suite, full-service laboratory, oncology unit, physical therapy facilities, and over 125 examination rooms with flexible configurations, facilitating collaboration between healthcare professionals, leading to holistic patient care and high-performance operations. Despite this scale and density, the design team was committed to crafting an experience comparable to visiting private practices. The patient-focused design of every practice is marked by refined materials and detailing, including practice-specific artwork and accent colors, which are coordinated with the way finding system. Shaw Contract flooring was a critical component with its refined colors and range of diverse patterns. Another essential variable in choosing flooring products was durability. Both the fiber and backing withstand the multi-faceted rigors placed on products in any healthcare setting while staying true to the design firm’s approach, deeply rooted in environmental and social responsibility.
