Catholic Medical Center
Intensive Care Unit
Catholic Medical Center hired Lavallee Brensinger Architects to renovate a wing located vertically between two active units. The resulting new 10 bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) encapsulates the latest thinking in ICU design by having both room side and central staff workspace.
Part of the planing process included spaghetti diagrams, workflow assessments, and other LEAN analysis so the resulting unit allows staff to: provide excellent patient care; minimize travel distances; maximize staff efficiency, and ensure the staff is aware of both current and future state conditions.
