PMBA Architects was selected as the design lead and architect for the 38,500 SF renovation of three floors at ProMedica Fremont Memorial Hospital for a new Inpatient Universal Bed Unit on the 2nd Floor of the Hospital and also a new Labor, Delivery, Recovery, Postpartum (LDRP) on the 1st Floor of the Hospital. To make the project possible, swing space and phasing of construction was required which included moving the Cardiology Suite onto the Ground Floor, moving Cardiac Pulmonary into a suite on the Ground Floor, moving the Quality and Administration Departments into the 2nd Floor, and the development of a Swing Clinic on the 2nd Floor. The design team also worked with the Hospital Administration on improving comfort, flow, and access to the Hospital through a Patient Experience Improvement project initiative, which included a new entry vestibule, new gift shop, new registration area, and new / expanded waiting areas.

 

The 1st Floor LDRP project included six private LDRP rooms (1 isolation and 1 with a birthing tub), C-Section, Nursery, two triage rooms and a non-stress testing room. The triage rooms and non-stress testing room were designed to meet the code requirements of a post-partum room, giving the Hospital flexibility to expand up to nine patient care rooms within the new LDRP unit. The 2nd Floor Universal Room unit includes eighteen private patient rooms designed to meet the requirements of an intensive care unit and creates an acuity adaptable staffing model that increases efficiency, patient satisfaction and allows the patient to stay in a single location for the duration of their hospital stay. The unit was designed with a decentralized nursing model, creating better visibility of each patient from a caregiver work station. Four of the universal rooms were designed to include space for an additional patient bed during high census periods, allowing up to twenty-two total patient care beds within the Hospital.
