Carving out space for new ORs and NICU on existing campus

SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center, NICU & Surgery Addition

St. Louis, Missouri

Following a planning process in 2002, this addition provides ten new operating rooms, an all-private room Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, new Central Sterile and shell space for future relocation of Radiology and Laboratory. In the surgery suite, architects addressed the need to create a platform for new technology and to provide flexibility for future change. Thus, operating rooms are designed to be reconfigured without demolition/construction to accommodate future needs and may be reassigned between surgical specialties as service volumes increase or decrease.

The NICU project needed to transition from a 44-bed open ward to 60 private patient rooms without increasing the current staffing ratio. Christner led a highly interactive process with NICU staff to better understand the implications of this change in nursing configuration. The design team built a full-scale room mock-up and simulated staff conditions to be certain that everything in the unit would function as planned.
