As part of the relocation of Children’s Hospital to the former Columbia Regional Hospital, this 10,100 s.f. total gut and remodel created a new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit twice the size of the former PICU at University Hospital. New medical gas and electrical systems were required as well as extensive plumbing rework. SOA organized patient rooms into separate ‘zones’ for the care giver, patient and family to support a high level of care while simultaneously accomodating family needs. Each room contains built-in casework with gaming stations to divert patient and family attention and help pass the time. Decentralized nurse stations combined with glass walls allow continuous observation of critial patients from just outside the room, giving families a little more privacy.
