Abington Memorial Hospital’s five-story Lenfest Pavilion doubled its capacity for private patient rooms, meeting demands of the growing Philadelphia suburban community. Shen Milsom & Wilke’s medical equipment planning services included needs analysis, budget development, procurement, logistics and installation and relocation management.
The project added a total of 188 new patient rooms and eight operating rooms, including 33 critical care beds, 25 maternity rooms, an antepartum testing area, a post-partum unit and a well-baby nursery. The new space also accommodated an expanded emergency department along with day surgery and preoperative and postoperative recovery. New operating rooms with digital, voice-activated equipment were designed to enhance surgical efficiency and improve patient care, and implementation of white-noise technology reduced the noise coming from outside patient rooms.
