Shremshock recently completed a new state-of-the-art 16 bed ICU by completely gutting and renovating an underutilized patient floor in the Lima Hospital bed tower. The project size is 15,970 SF and cost $3,918,630 resulting in a per/SF cost of $235.
Highlights of the project issues / value added include the following:

  • Lighting – Placement of corridor night lights and multiple lighting combinations within the patient room minimize the impact on the patient while allowing staff to function efficiently.
  • Sound Attenuation – The use of special acoustic ceiling tiles, wall construction, wall materials, flooring and floor plan design contribute to a more peaceful floor.
  • Infection Control – Specific placement of sinks, cubical curtain tracks, sharps, glove boxes and other items all promote staff to work in a clean environment, and the use of anti-microbial materials, and details such as minimizing material transition joints, reduce bacterial buildup and promote patient safety.
  • Patient & Family Safety – Increase of security to the unit, patient room layout, location provided maximum line of sight throughout the unit. Patient rooms also have permanent bariatric lifts to assist patients and increase a sense of security during transport.
  • Staff Enhancements – Decreased travel distances, generous headwall and toilet room area for assisting patients, utilization of technology and clear view of patients from all points on the unit.
