To accommodate current intensive care unit needs while providing for future flexibility, 30 new universal patient rooms and associated support spaces were designed for the Seidman Cancer Center in existing shell space.
The design team was challenged with creating an environment that supported caregiver workflow, maximized visibility, and provided patient rooms that promote healing. Nurse stations are divided throughout the core, creating several touchdown points for staff to stay close to their patients. The stations were illuminated to identify them as a point of assistance for family members, as well as to provide soft corridor lighting during evening hours. The patient rooms were designed with soothing materials and soft colors throughout.
