JBA provided complete architectural services for an 8-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. A satellite facility for NYPH, the Unit was designed to handle additional patient volume and to mimic the existing fifty-bed NICU in the main building. The similarity enables staff to work in either facility without additional training or adjustments. Patients, family members, and staff benefit from an abundance of natural light which is controlled by adjustable shades and dimmers. The warm color palette complements and augments the natural light to create a nurturing space for newborns and their families.
Wide aisles between the separate infant care spaces provide easy equipment access, as well as privacy and space for visiting family.
