Their challenge

This complex renovation project involved the addition of three new private rooms, a 3100A frequency oscillatory ventilator, and RetCam (a pediatric eye imaging device) to the existing NICU at St. Elizabeth. The update aimed not only to increase the functionality of the unit, but also to improve healthcare providers’ ability to protect critical infants from overwhelming stimuli and harmful exposure.

Our solution

Our work on this renovation and expansion project took into special consideration the critical needs of the infant patients that would occupy the space. We provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for the new rooms and supported the installation of new ventilation and medical equipment in the main NICU area. This work included design for specialized lighting and noise reduction infrastructure in the ceilings and flooring. Salas O’Brien also renovated and updated the nurse call station to ensure better, faster communication and ease of access.
