Creating a space for inspiration and healing

SSM Health, St. Mary’s Hospital NICU

St. Louis, Missouri

The new 24,000 sf Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at St. Mary’s Hospital consists of 42 intensive-care beds, including two rooms to accommodate twins. Adjoining rooms are also offered on one corridor of the unit. 
Educational components were central to the unit’s design. A large classroom was designed for childbirth classes within the NICU.  In order to accommodate students from St. Louis University School of Medicine, the unit includes one fully-equipped simulation room for teaching and observation.
The NICU entry is equipped with remote access. In order to enter the NICU, visitors must first wash their hands at the dedicated family hand-wash stations. Front desk staff will then grant access through a remote release system on the entry doors.
A family lounge is located next to an existing roof terrace and offers parents’ showers, kitchenette, laundry facilities. 
The design of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was inspired by nature, which is close to the hearts of the Franciscan Sisters of Mary.
A local photographer was commissioned to photograph native plants with symbolic meanings. This collection of images is displayed throughout the unit and represents the perseverance, courage, and strength of NICU babies and their families.
