The Christ Hospital Outpatient Center
KLH provided full MEP and technology systems design for the first and second floors. The first floor contains a surgery center and a Women’s Imaging Center occupies the second floor. Services specific to this surgery center included exhaust systems, water distribution, sanitary systems, low voltage raceways for technology systems, emergency and life safety systems, nurse call systems and security systems design among other standard MEP system designs.
In collaboration with the architect and interior designer, and with the comfort of the patient in mind, KLH provided lighting design for spaces from the entrance to waiting areas, individual rooms, and reception areas. Particular thought was given to the design on the first floor pre- and post-op spaces so that patients themselves could control the overhead lighting, while ambient lighting was achieved by grazing the walls. Many spaces throughout the two floors have separate lighting control systems for the comfort of both staff and patients.
