Description

Difficult, gritty work occurs behind the walls of a medical examiner’s office. For the medical professionals, it is a strictly regulated, highly secure and highly technical environment. For the public arriving at the facility, it is quite simply the worst day of their lives.

This building elevates the expectation of what a medical examiner facility should be. It recognizes the demanding and honorable mission of forensic science, a profession too often relegated to dark, windowless boxes. Instead, it brings a world-class medical center to the community, one that better serves physicians, technicians, law enforcement and grieving families.
