Project Type: Lobby and Medical Facility Remodel
Client: Essentia Health-East Region
Essentia Health selected LHB to design the remodel of the St. Mary’s Medical Center Birthplace Unit which included remodel of all LDRP, Postpartum and Long Term Stay rooms which included jet tubs, casework and finish upgrades.
The remodel also included relocation of the care team space to the entrance of the unit as well as decentralized nursing stations throughout the unit.
The Newborn Care Unit was enlarged to create a procedure area, additional storage and overflow for the NICU. All security and electrical was upgraded which included lock down of the unit. Ceiling soffits in the corridor were also added above each patient room. The remodel gave a much needed upgrade to the aesthetic of the unit to make it more mother/baby friendly with comforts of home.
