Parkin recently completed the Intermediate Care Redesign for Ward 7C, in the Slaight Atrium Building. As requested by the hospital, Parkin added observation nooks in the corridors to convert a traditional single patient ward to allow 2-1 intermediate care nursing. Optimization of nursing resources could now be achieved with the new physical layout.
“We are extremely happy with the outcome of the project. We appreciated your team’s diligence and creativity in designing this space to move our vision to reality. Your respectful cooperation in navigating the challenges of conducting this work in a busy inpatient area has been invaluable throughout the renovation process. We are also very pleased with the quality of the work and attention to detail. Since its opening last week, the new space has been universally admired by staff across the hospital and most importantly by patients and families. Thank you for working with us to create a better, safer experience for the children and families in our care.” – Kate Langrish, Clinical Director, Paediatric Medicine, Complex Care, Patient Access and Transitional Care, The Hospital for Sick Children.
