SwedishAmerican Hospital Mother / Baby Unit
16,000 Square Feet
In order to increase the size of SwedishAmerican Hospital’s OB Department, complete renovation of the 8th floor was undertaken. The resulting Mother/Baby Unit consists of twenty-five “rooming in” patient rooms that are designated to host the department’s postpartum patients. The clean, modern design of the unit is family-friendly, using warm colors and wood tones throughout. The nurses station and well-baby nursery were placed in a central location to tp create efficiencies by reducing travel distances for patients and staff. A greeter desk is located at the unit’s entry to ensure the safety of patients and staff while maintaining an inviting entry point to the floor.
