Project Overview

The Aspirus Women’s Health Birthing Center Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) features a 12-bed unit with private rooms for each infant with additional room to expand if needed. The space can accommodate multiple births and was designed in a LDRP setting.

It is the only NICU in the area to utilize the private-room care model, giving families and their newborns the privacy they need to bond, and obtain maximum health. The space includes a family waiting area with a kitchen, bathroom, TV area, play zone and computer area for families to use. The entire unit promotes a family-focused experience.

Special attention was paid to infection control, noise and power disruption since construction was completed in and around patient care areas. Our team met with Aspirus staff daily to ensure all team members understood current construction activities and protocols.
