Grand Opening and Dedication of the Curtis D. Robinson Men’s Health Institute for Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center

Jan 15, 2013

Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center and The Urban League of Greater Hartford (ULGH) today announced the grand opening of the Curtis D. Robinson Men’s Health Institute, a remodel project designed by JCJ Architecture.

The 4,800-square-foot remodel creates a patient-friendly, non-hospital setting where Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center can provide readily accessible men’s health screening services to an underserviced, high-risk patient population. The first floor remodel included three new group seminar rooms which will be used for patient and staff education.

To make space available for this men’s health program, JCJ designed an additional 4,500-square-foot remodel that moved classrooms from the first floor to the building’s third floor. These classrooms help the ULGH continue their work in education, employment and training, in addition to providing economic enrichment to the community.

JCJ’s project team included professionals from across JCJ’s network of offices, led by Principal David Barkin, AIA, and Health Planner and Project Manager Doug Roberts, AIA. KBE Building Corporation served as general contractor.
