The layout of healthcare environments is incredibly important, and recently these environments have started to change rapidly, and the usage of space has never been more important. By applying an evidence-based approach to space planning and product trends, we anticipate future changes, and stay ahead.
Together, our family of brands offer a holistic collection of products to help elevate every experience and impact the way healthcare is delivered tomorrow.
In the wake of COVID-19, healthcare facilities across North America were pushed to capacity and beyond. The end-user, a Hospital in Lawrenceville, Georgia, sits in the northeastern suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, where Covid levels have remained a “red zone” for much of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The Atlanta region is experiencing rapid growth, and, even before the COVID-19 pandemic, we began looking at opportunities to increase our bed capacity and flexibility to handle an influx of patients,” said Debbie Mitcham, CEO of end-user. With a seemingly unending surge of Covid patients adding to an already stressed workload, the hospital needed to add to its capacity as quickly as possible. Lives were on the line.
As the first hospital in the Southeast to install STAAT Mod (Strategic, Temporary, Acuity-Adaptable Treatment) units to care for COVID-19 patients, Northside is fulfilling a much-needed remedy in their patient capacity. The innovative and highly engineered STAAT MOD concept conforms to hospital quality standards and easily flexes to provide traditional inpatient capacity or critical care. STAAT MOD operations allow for Airborne Infection Isolation Rooms (AIIR) that provide increased safety for both patients and caregivers.
The STAAT Mod has an excellent life span, making it durable enough to support a longer-term hospital strategy, and is fully code compliant. The added space allows Northside to care for various patients without sacrificing clinical quality, safety, efficiency, or any patient’s dignity.
A 71-bed modular hospital, designed and built in a matter of weeks. This type of high acuity project would typically take many months, if not years. This project serves the immediate need to treat patients during a pandemic and has become the foundation for a robust modular partnership with a top-ranked General Contractor.
