Newfield constructed a 23,000 square foot multi-phased renovation to accommodate a new 34-bed inpatient mental health unit. The purpose of this project was to provide all private and semi-private sleeping rooms along with provisions for female and geropsychiatric patients. In addition, the unit provides enhanced safety and aesthetics for patients, staff, and visitors. This self-contained area allows patients to stay within the unit for all of their daily needs. Besides the patient rooms, two hospital wings include nursing stations, living rooms, dining areas, administrative and conference room space. An adjacent transfer area allows patients to be safely integrated into and out of the unit.
Top security is critical in this facility which incorporates features such as card readers and specialty door hardware to keep patients safe. This project required extensive coordination of all trades with occupied floors above and below
