NICU undergoes a redesign for the new Acute Care Centre

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