Level 3 waiting area

The final phase of an $82M expansion transforms the acute-care experience for patients undergoing elective surgeries, while enhancing the workplace for medical staff. The innovative unit occupies the third level above the Hirair and Anna Hovnanian Emergency Care Center. The program organizes 36 private rooms into three 12-bed neighborhoods. Spacious rooms and waiting areas  filled with color, art, and natural light create a hotel-like ambience that helps reduce stress and promote healing. Curving hallways and nursing stations are designed to mitigate typical hospital noise.
