Stepping into the forefront of innovative design, the 13-story MCAR building is poised to elevate the patient experience. It offers an expanded realm for Shepherd Center's clinical, administrative, and research programs, with architecture meticulously crafted for both functionality and aesthetics. A fully enclosed pedestrian walkway seamlessly connects the existing facility to the new MCAR building, ensuring uninterrupted accessibility.
At RJTR, we've embraced the privilege of crafting these transformative spaces. Our focus is not solely on architecture; it's on cultivating an environment that nurtures healing, fosters hope, and celebrates the strength of the human spirit. As we provide architectural, interior design, and engineering services for these projects, we're driven by the belief that design can be a catalyst for positive change, enriching lives in ways that extend far beyond construction.
"The Family Residences will transform and expand Shepherd Center’s current campus, with the goal of accommodating more patients and families and advancing their already-innovative and life-changing services."
