Providing a welcoming and pleasant
experience for delivering mothers and
their families is the focus at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital's Family Birth
Center. Renovations, completed in
2014, were a two-year undertaking that
transformed the existing 50-year-old
facility. The resulting design supports
a comforting and healing environment
that is reflective of the care patients
receive.
Using collaborative Lean workshops,
market research, and feedback from
former patients, Park Nicollet identified what mattered most to delivering mothers and their families. The
40,000-square-foot birth center with
hotel-style labor, delivery, and recovery
(LDR) suites, has the most water birthing tubs in the state. All of the suites,
as well as the antepartum, postpartum
and special care nursery spaces, have a
spa-like feel to reinforce a calming and
healing environment.

Additional amenities that support
family members and guests include a
family lounge, a café with refreshments,
and a concierge station to assist with
patients' and guests' requests.
During the five phases of construction, Park Nicollet used innovative and
proactive approaches to optimize the
patient experience. Throughout construction patients were given a welcome
kit that explained the renovation project
and offered natural solutions to help
them stay comfortable despite the noise,
including aromatherapy patches and
vouchers for complimentary care therapies. Patient experience scores remained
high throughout the project and have
continued to grow since its completion.
Since opening the new Family Birth
Center, patient feedback and business
metrics support Park Nicollet's vision

of the renovation project: to create a
comfortable birth center that reflects
what matters most to today's moms and
families.
Project highlights:

* Optimized first impression:
welcome lounge and
multifunctional presentation space
with refreshments
* Serpentine entry experience with
soothing nature art and a concierge
station
* Spa-like design: uncluttered,
modern environment with
carefully integrated technology and
comforting amenities
* Supportive family spaces: lounge
with fireplace, café
* Comfortable, private triage rooms
* Spacious LDR suites with water

birth and hydrotherapy options
(including walk-in rain showers)
* Antepartum rooms with LDR
capability for flexibility
* Former LDRs refreshed for familyfriendly postpartum suites
* Privacy enhanced through
decentralized charting stations and
family sitting areas
* Private special care nursery rooms
with comfortable family zone
* Design solutions that creatively
navigate challenging existing
conditions: scope spans three
buildings of different eras (1950s,
'70s, and '90s) with tight floor-tofloor heights and varying window
and column locations
* "Ribbons of light" create soft,
indirect illumination despite
minimal ceiling clearances.

Jury comments:
* The serpentine corridor that
bisects the birth center is a
very nice feature and creates
a lot of interest.
* They succeeded in creating
a spa-like environment that
was visually clean but not
institutional.
* Concierge, café, and lounge
areas will be excellent for
improving the experience of
the visiting families.
* Great job using patient
feedback to optimize the
patient experience.
