Oregon, Ohio

11,000 SF

Due to an increase in patient demand and more stringent care requirements, ProMedica Bay Park Hospital’s existing Intensive Care Unit (ICU) department could not adequately serve its patients. Patient care spaces, equipment, and required technology required upgrades if the facility were to retain its reputation for providing exceptional care.

In an effort to continue serving the community with quality healthcare services, ProMedica decided to construct a new ICU on the second floor of the existing hospital. This allowed the facility to continue providing patient care while the new ICU was constructed. The new, 11,000 SF ICU was constructed above the existing first floor of the hospital, with some portions extending over the loading dock and emergency ambulance drop-off area. The project also involved selective demolition and the renovation of adjacent spaces. The addition of a new dedicated patient elevator provides patients with direct and private access to the new ICU from the ground floor.

Sustainable design initiatives were incorporated into the enhanced building envelope and involved natural and artificial lighting, acoustics, and energy reduction / usage. The inclusion of room and headwall mock-ups were integral to the project success by identifying operations, connections, safety, and access prior to mass production. As a result, the completed ICU rooms clearly articulated patient, family, and caregiver zones.
