The Pavilion at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
The Pavilion at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania is one of the country’s newest destinations for state-of-the-art medical care. Boasting an impressive 17 stories, 504 private patient rooms, and 47 operating rooms, the Penn Medicine facility opened its doors in late 2021 and has quickly become a national “beacon of hope” for patients and their families. A number of Wilsonart surfaces were installed to complete the Pavilion, and Wilsonart® Solid Surface led the way. More than 10,000 sheets of Solid Surface, equivalent to 300,000 sq. ft., can be found in patient rooms and staff areas, and on furniture. Using Solid Surface directly on furniture was a manufacturing feat that allows for cohesive styling throughout the hospital. Custom Wilsonart® Solid Surface designs were placed on patient room headwalls. Additionally, more than 1,300 Solid Surface sinks were installed for daily use.
