Morris Switzer and Associates
Morris Switzer and Associates were hired by Fletcher Allen Health Care to design a new inpatient bed replacement building that consists of 4 inpatient floors and 128 private rooms in 162,000sf. Each of the private rooms were designed with enhanced monitoring capabilities and a medical/surgical telemetry bed. These sophisticated rooms allow for more patient privacy, a reduction in patient transfers, assist with infection control, allow more natural light to enter the room, and provide more space for family members. With these additional rooms, the hospital was able to increase their single occupancy rate from 42% to 85%.
