Via Christi Hospital Women’s Center
Before designing the Women’s Center, HMN’s team accompanied the client on a tour of several other facilities to “benchmark” the preferred configuration of the new unit. Mock-up rooms were then developed to determine the desired layouts for the LDR and Post-Partum rooms. The renovated center is three times the size of the previous unit. The new Women’s Center has five labor rooms and 13 all-private postpartum rooms. Rooms are equipped with hotel-style amenities, including flat screen televisions, recliners and larger bathrooms with showers and hair dryers. The $6 million project includes two new triage rooms and a central fetal monitoring system, allowing nurses to monitor multiple babies.
