As one of the top pediatric caregivers in the nation, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital quickly outgrew its space and required more space for patient care. Stantec utilized an integrated design process to reimagine their former office space on the 22nd floor to accommodate the critical care needs for children and their families. When designing an intensive care for children, the role of the family and the integrity of function are at the forefront. Lurie Children’s Hospital, Stantec, Mortenson, and AEI had to work cohesively in order to successfully renovate the 22nd floor within an active, 24-hour hospital environment. By maintaining a strong relationship with all team members and staying flexible, Lurie Children’s Hospital is now well-equipped with a fully-functioning ICU floor for the children and their families. Our presentation will provide multiple points of view on the joint effort of the clinical users in developing a successful project.
