CCMH Inpatient Room Redesign
If you’ve stayed with
Campbell County Memorial Hospital for medical surgical, ICU or OB care, you likely know why this remodel
is terribly needed. The current rooms were not built with the needs of
today’s care practices in mind. They are small, awkward, and limited
when it comes to accommodating equipment, providers and families. The
new patient rooms will create a functionally effective work space and
flow, and will serve us well for the next 40 to 50 years.
Financial projections show the project can be funded with existing cash
and revenue, though other options are being discussed, such as bond financing.
No final decisions have been made yet. The project will take at least
20 months to complete after construction starts, and the Board of Trustees
must still decide if the project should be built in two years, or stretch
out to four years.
- Current rooms are too small to accommodate modern equipment and family
members who want to visit or spend the night
- Bathrooms are too small and don't have a sink inside the bathroom
- Maternal child rooms didn’t really work for how babies are delivered
and cared for now—mom stays in the same room through her entire say
- The location of supplies and nursing stations are inefficient and prevents
nurses from spending more time at the bedside
