Project Description

To meet a growing need for multiple imaging technologies, this project expanded an outpatient Women’s Imaging Department and created a new In-patient Imaging Department. The Women’s Imaging Suite, consisting of three Ultrasound Rooms, two Mammography Rooms, X-Ray, and Bone Densitometry, was designed to increase patient comfort and privacy while also economizing work flow. Patients waiting for re-screening are separate from new patients and dressing rooms are directly adjacent to treatment rooms. Treatment rooms are centrally located near technician work rooms to increase efficiency and shorten appointments. The In-patient Imaging Department consists of a new MRI Suite as well as an ultrasound and X-Ray suite. This configuration allows a patient to get all imaging completed in one area of the hospital to reduce patient travel and stress. The finishes were selected to create a comfortable, residential feeling, and the use of glass in the corridors brings the natural light into the space.
