Mother / Baby Unit, SwedishAmerican Hospital
16,000 sq. ft.
As part of SwedishAmerican Hospital’s OB Department expansion, a 16,000 SF remodeling of the vacant 8th floor was undertaken. The resulting Mother/Baby Unit consists of 25 “rooming in” patient rooms that are designated to the department’s postpartum patients. The clean, modern design of the unit was kept family-friendly with warm colors and wood tones throughout. The nurse station and well-baby nursery were centrally located in order to keep travel distances for patients and staff to a minimum. A lively-designed greeter desk is located at the unit’s entry. Doubling as the physical access control point, the greeter desk helps ensure the safety of patients and staff while maintaining an inviting environment as they enter the floor.
