Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Outpatient Center has been recognized with an American Institute of Architects Richmond Honor Award of Excellence in Architecture. 

The AIA Richmond Honor Award recognizes works that exemplify excellence in architecture, interior architecture and urban design.  

“In addition to creating an inspiring, playful and wonderful healing environment for Chattanooga and its children, we wanted to create award winning design,” stated Bruce Komiske, vice president of New Hospital Design and Construction at Erlanger Health System.  

The AIA Awards are open to all associate AIA members and other non-licensed employees of the AIA Richmond Chapter member firms. The program is not a competition but recognition of projects that a jury, appointed by the Chapter Honors committee, deems to have achieved excellence in architecture. 

Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Outpatient Center is designed by architecture firm HKS, Inc. This is the third design award the firm has won for an Erlanger project. Last year, the company won two awards for the design of Erlanger East Hospital, the 2017 Healthcare Interior Design Competition Winner for Hospitals – Community from the International Interior Design Association and the 2017 Symposium Distinction Award – User Centered Award from Healthcare Facilities Symposium. 

Erlanger Health System broke ground for Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Outpatient Center in June 2017, the project is slated to open December 2018. For more information about Children’s Hospital at Erlanger Outpatient Center or to donate to the Believe campaign, visit www.webelieve.build.
