Northern Duchess Hospital – Surgery Center
Rhinebeck, New York
Working with HealthQuest and Kirchhoff Medical Properties, SBA has planned and designed an 80,000 square-foot addition for Northern Duchess Hospital, which will contain forty single-patient rooms and surgical services.
Programming for the three-story addition includes a new surgery suite with five standard operating rooms and future space for one hybrid OR, a preparatory and post-anesthesia recovery unit, and an in-patient floor with private rooms, including one bariatric room and five visual monitoring rooms.
Patient privacy and comfort are maintained through several innovative features, including acoustic partitions separating the rooms, individual mechanical units allowing for bedside control of room temperature, built-in storage, and pull-out sleeper beds for overnight family and visitor stays. Designed with the concepts of “lean” medical planning, the rooms are identical in layout and equipment in order to reduce medical errors and to increase efficiency.
