Tour the Firstenburg Tower

The E.W. & Mary Firstenburg Tower represents the most advanced architectural and clinical design in the history of southwest Washington. It has become a showplace facility with patients from around the country coming to experience the extraordinary facility's built-in thoughtfulness. From private elevators to convenient family spaces, every detail was thought out during an intense design process that included physicians, staff and architects from Seattle's NBBJ, a global design firm dedicated to helping organizations create innovative places.

Before you step inside — Towering features

The eight story, 307,000 square foot tower has a distinctive façade featuring glass, stone, and concrete, and features a covered drop-off area for patients and families.



Step right in — Soaring space and elegant comfort

The lobby area offers a glorious amount of natural light and a sweeping overlapping wing-style ceiling design that extends beyond the lobby to continue the unique architectural theme outdoors. It features informational kiosks, cafe, resource center, outpatient pharmacy and lab services, registration, fireplace and designated space for musical performances and other entertainment, as well as holiday events.



When you need it most — Advanced treatment and care in easy reach

The tower houses major services of three of PeaceHealth Southwest's most experienced Centers of Excellence: the Heart & Vascular Center, the Bone & Joint Center, and the Brain & Spine Center. It features two dedicated open heart surgery suites, 13 new state-of-the-art surgery suites for trauma, general and orthopedic surgery, and five floors of private, single-occupancy patient rooms with accommodations for family and visitors (154 patient rooms).
