Brigham & Women's Faulkner Hospital - Total Joint Center
This project was the first major renovation of an inpatient unit at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital since the building was built. It was originally a 34 single-bed unit
renovated to a 24 single-bed, patient/family focused, orthopedic unit. The new private rooms were designed to current DPH standards and included private accessible toilet and shower rooms as well as ample space for patients families and guests. The unit is to serve total joint replacment patients, therefore a small physical therapy room was also placed within the unit to avoid patients having to travel to a central rehab facility. Significant coordination was required before and during construction to accommodate the new and relocated services with an existing cast-in-place concrete structure and occupied patient rooms on the floor below.
