Enhanced patient care.
Convenient "one-stop shop" for patients and families.
Firelands Regional Medical Center's East addition exemplifies a dramatic and strategic realignment of the organization through an enhanced patient care environment. Supporting the hospital's strategic plan, HED combined the beds and services from two campuses into one, creating convenient "one-stop· access” for patients and families.
Designed as the new image and "front door" to the hospital, this multipurpose addition includes 82 new beds, a new state-of-the-art surgical department, comprehensive cardiovascular services, and retail and registration functions.
Shaped as a simple rectangle, the bed tower supports flexibility with a large core support area and the maximum amount of private rooms. This shape and simple structural bay system results in key benefits for long-term adaptability to changing demands, including reducing the impact of longer travel distances to private rooms. Utilizing evidence-based design solutions, such as infection reduction, promotion of family involvement and patient access to nature, the design advances new concepts of decentralized nursing care and patient rooms that adapt to acuity of care and incorporates new technologies and paperless charting.
When added together, these carefully considered elements don't only equate to a medical center that's prepared for the evolution of healthcare: they create an experience that puts the satisfaction of patients, family and staff above all else.
