Loretto Hospital commissioned us to renovate their 3W high-acuity behavioral health unit, which we redesigned to incorporate the latest in Mental Health Environment of Care Design Criteria. The high-acuity unit consists of 36 beds - 18 male and 18 female. The male and female units are separated with a centralized nursing station and medication room, and each unit contains a restraint room. Group Rooms and Day Rooms were enlarged to brighten the spaces, with improved finishes and better lighting to encourage patients to engage in more social activity.
