CHILDREN'S HEALTHCARE OF ATLANTA - EGLESTON
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The TVS healthcare team completed in late 2018 the design for a 29,000 sf, 35-bed expansion at Children’s Egleston campus to occur over two phases. The scope of this project is a new 17- bed hematology/oncology unit, as well as, a new 10-bed PICU both on the sixth floor. Additionally, the design team has planned for finish upgrades to five NICU beds on the second floor as well as the entire second floor CSU unit, which will also include two new CSU rooms.
Eight existing medical/surgical beds on the fifth floor are being renovated and upgraded to become TICU beds and a new office suite for the Sibley cardiac surgeons will go into existing space on the second floor.
Renovation is never without challenges. When designing patient rooms, we strive to make them as similar as possible for efficiency. Due to the column spacing many of the rooms had to be adjusted or oriented differently to accommodate the existing structure. Additionally, one of the design challenges was to relocate two dialysis rooms so that they could stay in operation. The new design had to locate this program so that it could be the first phase of construction to maintain operation during later phases
