    This webinar explores how the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia pursued a vision to develop a new pediatric patient care unit: one that would meet the requirements and licensure of an acute care unit, but would provide a safe and supportive environment for patients with a comorbid developmental, behavioral, or psychiatric diagnosis.

    Based on the project team’s expertise in behavioral health best practices, a recommendation to separate these populations was implemented. Follow-up data will be collected prior to the start of construction in the fall of 2018, and again once the new/renovated facility is in operation (projected for 2021). HDR is willing to share the research plan and design and baseline resident findings.

    When Northeast Georgia Health System decided in 2015 to build a new 100-bed hospital on a greenfield site in Braselton, they invited staff within their existing system to participate on the design team—many of whom would not go on to work in the new building.

    Research included findings about the care and treatment of persons with infectious diseases, lessons learned from Ebola outbreak sites, and key research about infection control. Our preliminary studies found that the unit design allowed for both flat-bed trucking and overseas shipping. Moreover, setup is possible in most locations, from existing hospital parking lots to rural settings. Next steps identified by the team would include a full mock-up with observational studies, patient input, a full engineering study, and cost analysis.

    Corgan was tasked to design these two new environments to work as one and, through a collaborative visioning process, a single vision was achieved. The project ultimately included a 40,000 square-foot inpatient renovation and a 27,000 square-foot outpatient renovation.

    This body of work culminated in the creation of a Patient Field Guide to introduce the new hospital tower to patients and their families. The Field Guide highlights the hospital’s many thoughtfully designed features and amenities, while also situating the building contextually within Piedmont Atlanta Hospital’s health campus and the surrounding community.
