Self Regional Healthcare, Birthing Center + Ambulatory Care Center

Self Regional Healthcare Birthing Center and Ambulatory Care Center needed improvements to optimize space, enhance workflows, and boost patient satisfaction. The ambulatory center, having lost 20% of its square footage, needed to regain this space, while the birthing center required updates to finishes and materials. Additionally, both centers needed better circulation and wayfinding solutions.

Simplified Wayfinding Enhanced Patient Satisfaction

The existing routes from the main hospital entrance to outpatient surgery and the delivery unit were complex and unsatisfactory for patients. By realigning vehicular circulation, the design team created a dedicated entrance on the west end of the campus for maternity and outpatient surgical patients, reducing the steps needed to reach their care providers. A new dedicated elevator offers 24-hour access to the birthing center, eliminating the need to pass through the emergency department after hours for planned admissions.

Birthing Center + Ambulatory Care Material and Finish Updates Reduced Infection Risk

The previous wood finishes were difficult to clean and posed an infection risk due to their porosity. McMillan Pazdan Smith interior designers specified new, easily cleanable materials for flooring, windowsills, wall treatments, and light fixtures. This specification effort included an evaluation of ongoing maintenance and lifecycle costs in addition to initial costs.
