Behavioral Health Inpatient Unit

Challenge

In an effort to provide a full spectrum of health services to the community, Clermont Hospital, along with Mercy Health leadership determined the best course of action was a complete renovation to a hospital inpatient unit was the best solution. Several behavioral health services, including in- and outpatient and partial hospitalization, were included in the project scope.  Fourteen inpatient beds (at a minimum) had to be kept operational during all phases of the project. Adjacent units running 24/7 also needed to be kept top-of-mind during the planning of constrction phasing.

Solution

Project visioning sessions and in-depth user group meetings discovered the pairing of in- and outpatient services in one unit to be an optimal solution for this important service line. Twenty-four adult patient beds, split between 16 private rooms and four semi-private rooms, fill out the renovated space. In-unit dining, group therapy and recreational outlets s are also available on-Unit.

Result

Now boasting patient-centered treatment, resource areas for walk-in clients, private spaces for visitation and space dedicated for exercise, Clermont Hospital is now able to provide its constituents full behavioral health services close to home. Benefits of the re-designed unit include shared clincal work spaces, reflecting a team staffing model as well as multi-disciplinary workspaces instead of typical nurse stations.
