Marshall Medical Center South needed additional patient rooms to allow them to move toward an all private room model. They also needed to consolidate women’s services into a new facility with an inviting look and a more focused environment. On a constrained campus, they also needed to plan for upcoming expansions.
With an eye toward shifting all patient rooms toward a more efficient care delivery model, the design team planned a multi-story patient tower. The new Women’s Center serves the immediate need and is designed for vertical expansion to replace existing patient units. PerryCrabb designed circadian lighting controls to create a more natural environment for new mothers, infants, and other patients. In prior years, PerryCrabb designed a new Central Energy Plant for then-current needs, but with clear paths for expansion. The first CEP expansion to serve the new Women’s Center was implemented without interruption of services to the existing campus.
With good planning, a seamless expansion of the central plant serves this new Women’s Center. Infrastructure designed for future growth of the Women’s Center will reduce the impact of those expansions.
