Morris Hyman Critical Care Pavilion

The Morris Hyman Critical Care Pavilion is a 224,800 square-foot medical facility that is home to Washington Hospital’s Emergency Department, Critical Care, Telemetry, Intermediate Care and Oncology/Medical-Surgical units. The state-of-the-art, three-story facility is built on the most sophisticated base isolation system, making it one of the most seismically safe structures in the southeast Bay Area.

The Pavilion is the largest public works project in the history of Washington Township Health Care District, and represents a pivotal moment for the Hospital. The building dramatically expands the Hospital’s ability to meet the community’s health care needs. Its patient-focused design creates a comfortable and calming atmosphere for patients, visitors, employees, physicians and volunteers. All rooms in the Pavilion are private and large, which enhances patient comfort, safety and privacy. Inpatient rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum natural light, which encourages healing. Beds can even be wheeled into outdoor spaces for patients to enjoy fresh air and peaceful gardens. The Emergency Department (ED) is four times the size of the previous department. The ED’s expansion and wide array of advanced equipment allows the Hospital to apply to be a designated trauma center.

The Pavilion is proudly named after Morris Hyman, community leader and advocate, visionary, philanthropist and Fremont Bank founder. The Pavilion’s Main Lobby is home to a life-size statue of Morris Hyman, which sits below a beautiful three-story glass atrium.
