New Inpatient Ward

This project consisted of a slab to slab demolition of the entire inpatient ward and all associated supporting space. A completely new patient-centered inpatient ward was design to include single loaded corridors to bring in more natural light, individual patient observation stations and a number of family areas.

  • Extensive field investigation was performed to document as-built conditions in this historic building.
  • Presentation of a number of patient-centered concepts to the Engineering, Medical and Directors staff.
  • Interior Design included warm colors, wood paneling and artwork to conceal med gases and oxygen.
  • Special attention was given to lighting to provide a more homelike environment.
  • The design included a rooftop garden, visible from most patient rooms.
  • A nourishment and dining room was created to allow family members to dine with patients.
  • An adequately sized family waiting area was provided.
  • A meditation room for quiet reflection or discussions with staff was included as part of the design.
