Desoto Regional Health System – Nurse Station Re-Location
2,000 Square Feet
DeSoto Regional Health System hired Prevot Design Services to provide master planning, existing facility updates for Life Safety plans, and to design various new elements in the hospital. One of these areas designed is the relocation of the main nurse’s station, physician lounge, nurse’s lounge, family consultation room, Chapel, and support spaces. The design criteria is to relocate and expand the size of the nurse’s station and bring it up-to-date with modern technology while keeping the existing nurse’s station fully functional during construction. In conjunction with the new nurse’s station, PDS was challenged with providing a new location for an intimate, yet comfortable, family consultation room alongside a new Chapel space. Both of these spaces require extreme sensitivity to sound within the existing walls of the hospital.
