Providence St. Joseph - Starbucks

In order to elevate the healthcare experience, Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center wanted to incorporate a Starbucks as a campus amenity. The coffee company offers a modern modular configuration for a freestanding coffee stand that provided a unique opportunity for the hospital. Located on top of a parking structure, careful planning, excavation and landscaping were required to transform the 3,000-sq.ft. site to provide the proper conditions for the 500-sq.ft. modular Starbucks. Oriented to face the main building of the hospital, the walk-up coffee stand and outdoor patio area creates a communal setting, an inviting respite that is connected to campus walkways and easy for patients, visitors and staff to access—a familiar retail component that improves the healthcare experience.
