MDMH Projects Near Completion

November 12, 2014

A new Intensive Care unit and Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum unit are nearing completion at the Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital in Hamilton. These new facilities will provide comfort and efficiency for patients and hospital staff alike. The facilities are expected to be functional in early 2015.

The Intensive Care Unit will consist of five private patient rooms with private bathrooms, including a bariatric room and an ICU isolation room.  The project replaces a three bed one room ICU at this critical access hospital. The design philosophy was to provide maximum daylight exposure and exterior views for patients, privacy for family and patients, and optimum flow and function for staff and physicians. Each patient room has a large bay window with views of mountains to the south.

An expansive main nurse’s station oversees all of the patient rooms.  Natural light from a long bank of high clerestory windows will flood the area.  Adjacent to the ICU Patient Space are a large family waiting room and a private family consulting room.  Other spaces include a physician sleeping room with adjacent bathroom and shower, and physician charting space.

The Labor, Delivery, Recovery & Postpartum Remodel at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital creates a dedicated suite for new moms and babies and includes 2 LDR Rooms, 2 Postpartum Rooms, a Triage Room, a dedicated Waiting Room, a Nurse Station as well as other support spaces.  Medical equipment and technology are integrated into the room design so those items are out of sight unless needed in spacious rooms with all the comforts of home.
