NorthBay Medical Center Unveils Five-Year Expansion in October

The new 77,000-square-foot, three-story north wing of NorthBay Medical Center will be unveiled this October in Fairfield, California! The final phase of a five-year expansion project led by Ratcliff Architects, encompasses the new north wing and includes an additional 22 beds — bringing the hospital’s total number of beds to 154. In addition, the project included eight state-of-the-art surgical suites, a 16-bed post-anesthesia care unit, diagnostic imaging services, and a new 6,000-square-foot kitchen and café. Pickett Design Associates was the interior design consultant for this project, led by our Walnut Creek office under the direction of Senior Project Designer, Belinda Majors. Please take a look at the team's work!
