Patient Room Features | CHONY Pediatric Intensive Care UnitAdding intensive care bed capacity and putting focus on family amenities was achieved for New York Presbyterian-Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, Columbia Medical Center, by relocating an outpatient physicians practice and designing a 14-bed, private room PICU. Clinicians now have adequate space for each patient to have the support of their families at the bedside with a two-person daybed and unlimited visiting hours. This video features Array planners and designers as well as Children's Hospital leadership.
Theming | CHONY Pediatric Intensive Care UnitAt New York Presbyterian-Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, Columbia Medical Center, literature-based themes abound in both public and clinical zones throughout the campus. In the new Pediatric ICU the themes of growth and enrichment provided inspiration. The design team worked closely with hospital leaders, staff and family advisers to choose books which would embody these ideas and serve as conversation starters between parents and child. The books came to life throughout the Unit and in each patient room. The imagery and storybook phrases are a source of delight to parents, patients and siblings.
