Mercy- St. Louis Children’s Hospital
St. Louis, Missouri
Creating a distinctive 170-bed Children’s Hospital in the midst of the medical center campus required extraordinary vision. Christner’s planners captured new and renovated space and forged adjacencies vertically and horizontally, consolidating pediatric and NICU services in family-focused all-private rooms. All patient floors of the tower utilize a triple corridor design allowing for a quiet and peaceful experience for patients. The central, or “loud” corridor is used for distribution of supplies and visitor traffic. The “quiet” corridor adjacent to patient rooms is kept clear of equipment and foot traffic.
