Ingham Regional Medical Center Operating Room

Tags: Architecture, Engineering, Healthcare

When designing two new surgery units – Ingham Regional Orthopedic Hospital’s operating rooms 9 and 10 – Diekema Hamann had to accommodate technology and patient-care demands. The need for staff efficiency and patient and staff safety also had to be considered. These projects had to be designed and constructed quickly because a loss of operating revenue would have a significant impact on operating margins.

Diekema Hamann Architecture + Engineering designed both units in the midst of ongoing hospital operations. They featured state-of-the-art technology that uses space efficiently. Multidisciplinary teams combined technology with clinical excellence to provide high-quality care for patients in an environment that facilitates faster healing.

Project Includes

  • Delicate balance between "ideal" strategic analysis and the limitations of an existing building envelope.
  • Constant communication with nurses and physicians allowed staff to understand the challenges of constructing within their existing space.
  • Regular clinical input was essential in developing a plan that enhanced their system and maximized throughput.
