PROVENA SAINT JOSEPH MEDICAL CENTER
PEDIATRIC UNIT / PICU
Joliet, Illinois



The relocation of the pediatric unit included a 12-bed pediatric acute care unit, a 3-bed intensive care unit, including a new nurse work area and an isolation room, as well as a new nurses' station and a small satellite station.

A fast-track timeline, minimal budget, and broad range of appeal were the challenges facing the new Pediatric Unit / PICU. The project was completed in 4 months from design to final occupancy. Through the use of bright colors and bold graphics, the interior environment is conducive to the wide age range of patients using the facility, both the children and their families.
