About East Texas Medical Center
HGA Architects designed the East Texas Medical Center in Pittsburg, Texas with southern hospitality in mind. Their goal was to build the medical center as if it was in an inviting residential neighborhood atmosphere. This was accomplished by incorporating a cantilevered hip roof with a Bermuda Shingle to encapsulate a southern aesthetic feel. The Berridge Manufacturing Company’s Bermuda Panel was chosen based on the product quality, superior company service and product warranties. East Texas Medical Center’s company color is green but to create a timeless structure the Lead-Cote™ color was chosen for the Bermuda Panel.
The building includes a main public entry and lobby for both the hospital and clinic, defined by the tall glass form and cantilevered hip roof that extends forward to rest on large round columns. Two smaller but similar forms flank the main entry and serve as discrete entries for the emergency department and the administrative/conference areas. Together, the three forms project an image of teamwork, representing the nature of the integrated hospital and clinic functions inside.
Vaughn Construction, as the General Contractor, and Curtis-McKinley Roofing, as the Installer, created this beautiful roof and helped to create this look of southern hospitality that the traditional Bermuda Panel is known for inspiring.
