MOUNT SINAI was the first medical center in the

greater New York area to have a unit dedicated
to pediatric cardiac critical care, and for more
than 30 years has treated children who are critically ill with heart conditions or are recovering
from cardiac surgery. These patients are now
being cared for in a state-of-the-art Pediatric
Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (PCICU) designed
by Perkins Eastman.
The PCICU was created through full demolition and reconstruction of 5,000 square feet
while an existing unit on the same floor remained operational. Spatial constraints in the
early 1900s building-including floor-to-floor
heights and existing infrastructure necessary for
floors above and below that also remained operational-posed the biggest design challenge.
Described by staff as " a stunning transformation, " the new PCICU meets project objectives
to create a state-of-the-art CICU where patients and families could heal in, supported by a
soothing and whimsical environment.
The renovation created spacious, high-tech,
private patient rooms, each with a dedicated

BEFORE

* Great pediatric facility that feels sophisticated.
Love the use of " positive distractions. " Appears
that it would provide as much comfort to the
parents as the children. 
* Natural light and elements provide an airy and
uplifting environment void of typical pediatric
colors and elements that can be overstimulating
to both patients and families. Appreciate the use
of neutral finishes punctuated by key moments of
positive distraction. Beautiful transformation.
* Transformed a dark juvenile environment
into a sophisticated yet youthful and playful
environment. Engaging for all ages of client.
* The transformation of this turn-of-the-century
wing of a medical center into an open, light-filled
space for the healing of pediatric cardiac patients
is stunning. Patients and their families are
comforted by a warm, friendly environment that is
sure to help children with their healing process.
* Beautiful design; Included users in design
process; met building constraints head on;
created a warm, inviting and tranquil atmosphere
to improve patient and staff wellbeing by utilizing
EBD and biophilic design processes.

nursing substation, separate zones for patient, family, and the care team, and direct
access to a handicapped-accessible patient
toilet. The playful design theme takes inspiration from the project's location along New
York City's Central Park and evidence-based
design concepts of biophilic design and circadian lighting. Light-filled patient rooms also
include positive distractions and features
that help give patients and caregivers a sense
of control, which aids in the recovery process.
Throughout, the design team incorporated
feedback from families,
staff, and Child Life speBEFORE
cialists to create a welcoming, comfortable,
functional environment
for these high-acuity patients and their families.
