NICU undergoes a redesign for the new Acute Care Centre - Video

Using the IFD design process, healthcare professionals work together to improve the patient care experience - before construction even begins.  

BC Women's NICU staff show us how the design process works. 

 

This is achieved by testing the way patients and family members, care providers, medication, equipment, supplies and information could flow through the new NICU. For example, a new 3-D mock-up demonstrates that relocating the care station could improve sightlines to single patient rooms. Planning a facility using IFD allows providers to try out and revise numerous floor layouts, with the ultimate result being an improvement to patient care.
