Description

The conversion of a dated inpatient unit to behavioral health can seem simple, given the assumption of a “low acuity patient,” but the challenges range from concept to fit out. This session presents a case study of an expanded and altered inpatient behavioral health unit from start through post-occupancy feedback. The challenges of renovation for behavioral health can be underestimated, yet there are compelling opportunities for shaping focused and effective behavioral health environments and responding to increased community needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Shape space that addresses key design priorities, including clear sightlines, social interaction space, and patient and staff safety.
  • Identify essential design and fit-out elements in shaping a safe and comfortable environment for at-risk patients.
  • Identify key issues with complex patient groups, including acuity range and co-morbidity patients.
  • Describe key lessons learned based on post-occupancy observations.
