In order to provide residents of South Jersey exceptional care close to home, Inspira Health engaged Array to design a new 460,000 SF replacement hospital inclusive of a new state-of-the-art maternity unit. The goal for the unit was to provide a safe and home-like space where expectant mothers and their families can get the personalized care they deserve.
To achieve this goal, the design team worked closely with user groups to determine what would help make expectant mothers feel the most relaxed during their stay. Each labor delivery recovery post-partum room include areas that conceal equipment until they are needed during delivery to enhance the holistic family-friendly approach to care. The LDRP room model allows women and their partners to stay in the same space from admission to discharge. Spacious light-filled patient bathrooms are equipped with a jetted tub to soothe and assist mothers-to-be during labor and after the delivery.
The completed unit provides laboring mothers with all the amenities and technology needed to have a safe and personal birth experience. All rooms are private and are equipped with smart room technology, a refrigerator and comfortable sleeping accommodations for a partner. The unit also includes two operating rooms for cesarean sections.
