In addition to the square footage of the facility itself, the project includes two parking garages with a total of 2,600 parking spaces, as well as a helipad, ambulance shelter and dedicated central energy plant.

Using Evidence Based Design concepts, the hospital is designed to feel more residential than institutional. It includes patient-friendly features such as the use of themes to enhance wayfinding, relaxing and comforting testing and procedure rooms, healing gardens and positive distractions, single-bed rooms with family zones, maximized natural and morning light, and reduced noise sources. Sustainable design features include six landscaped courtyards, underground cisterns, rain barrels and rain gardens, large bioretention areas, and extensive green roofs. The project is LEED Gold certified, and it is the first Department of Defense Hospital to achieve a LEED Gold rating.
