New hospital tower design gets input from patients and school children
from Health Facilities Management
The recently completed five-story patient tower and renovations at Mercy Health-Anderson Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio, were designed to put patients first with input from them and children from a nearby school. The $74 million expansion adds 111 private patient rooms, including three new 30-bed units devoted to medical, surgical, and orthopedic patients, and a new 21-bed unit for cardiovascular patients. Patient rooms have sliding glass doors that go from opaque to transparent with the flick of a wall switch. The switch glass technology eliminates the need for privacy curtains and provides another infection control safeguard.
