NewYork Presbyterian commissioned Array to renovate their cramped and restricted administrative suite into an inpatient dialysis suite which came with several challenges. Some highlights of these included determining how to ensure patient privacy within an open space and designing a complex headwall system within tight floorplate constraints.
The decision was made to create three distinct zones within the Dialysis Unit which positively impact clinical care, nursing efficiencies, staff collaboration and patient amenities. A proprietary headwall system was also designed with three independent structural systems.
Creating a separate treatment space for inpatients was important for patient satisfaction and throughput. By decentralizing the heavily burdened combo Unit, the team captured under-utilized space for an in-demand clinical use and load leveled the patient influx in the now exclusively outpatient treatment space.
