Mercy Cedar Rapids Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing
ClientMercy Medical Center
With the desire to expand their rehabilitation and skilled nursing services, Mercy Medical Center asked OPN to fully renovate the existing inpatient unit to more than double the number of patients they can serve, from 8 to 22.
OPN planned and designed an inviting, functional, safe, and modern space with amenities to make each patient’s stay as comfortable as possible. Patient rooms include with natural accents and spacious and functional restrooms. The rooms have been carefully designed using multiple mock-ups and continuously refined to arrive at the best solution for comfort and promotion of quality care.
In addition to compliant and pleasing patient rooms, the dining and gym facilities will be upgraded to allow for the entire floor to flow together to encourage proper rehabilitation and a sense of community among patients and staff.
By reorganizing the floor, the design team was also able to improve staff efficiency by centralizing the nursing station.
