This facility is a pillar for the local area and was not meeting the current healthcare needs of the community.
Our master planning efforts included upgrades to the hospital and long term care to better help serve the community for the future
We assisted NDHC in determining the impacts of different care and treatment models to help guide the care for tomorrow
EAPC worked with our consultants to provide a market demand and affordability analysis along with a survey for the financial impacts of change for the proposed care models
Current phase includes Procedure Rooms, Pharmacy, Loading and Receiving, Senior Living, Assisted Living, Clinic, Imaging, Lab, Registration and Main Entry, Rehab, Administration, Ambulance Drop-Off, and Emergency Department
Biophilic design includes large windows in patient rooms and senior living areas to create direct and indirect experiences of nature in the built environment
Direct experiences of nature refer to plants and natural light and indirect experiences play with natural materials such as wood and images or simulations of nature
Biophilic design in healthcare improves patient healing and well-being; 10-15 minutes with nature can reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and increase the production of stress hormones
