LITTLE COMPANY OF MARY HOSPITAL
MEDICAL / SURGICAL INPATIENT BEDS
Evergreen Park, Illinois


The renovation of three wings of this floor stemmed from the desire to provide modern, all private patient rooms with all private baths while increasing the efficiency of the entire unit. The new layout provides 24 new, private patient rooms, increases staff efficiency and security, and minimizes construction cost while still providing a healthy, comfortable environment for the evaluation and assessment of patients.

With this project we are setting a new standard for patient rooms at the hospital. The room is divided into zones, with the patient zone in the heart of the room. The layout focuses on patient comfort with natural finishes and furnishings which are reminiscent of home. The family zone provides hotel-like amenities such as workspace, visitor storage, and comfortable furnishings. Medical equipment, nurse server, and storage in the critical staff zone are conveniently located yet unobtrusive to the patient. Safety, infection control, lighting, acoustics, and travel distances, as well as hospitality aesthetics, were just a few of the drivers of this design.
