NORTHERN LIGHTS REGIONAL HEALTH CENTRE – RENAL DIALYSIS (2008)
RENOVATION / CONSTRUCTION COST $1.0 MILLION
WESTLOCK HOSPITAL – RENAL DIALYSIS (2004)
RENOVATION / CONSTRUCTION COST $360,000
The Westlock renal dialysis was a small 170sq.m. addition, completed utilizing construction management, which included a Telehealth room and a 5 station dialysis unit. The area was laid out in a linear fashion with 4 open dialysis stations and the nursing station directly across from the units. An isolation room, washroom, water treatment and equipment service was also planned as part of the unit. There was also enough room to incorporate a clean and soiled holding room. A tight time frame contributed to the complexity of the project. Interiors and furnishing layouts for this project had to be carefully designed to create a comfortable environment for users who regularly spend many hours in the facility. The final product became a model site for the Province of Alberta.
ST. THERESE / ST. PAUL HOSPITAL – RENAL DIALYSIS (2002)
RENOVATION / CONSTRUCTION COST $460,000
The area within the hospital that was available to be renovated was located at the end of a unused patient wing. ACI introduced a new open concept that provided a central workstation with the 6 renal dialysis stations around the perimeter. The 6 station unit utilized 260 sq. m. with each dialysis station occupying at least 10.0 sq. m. with the nursing station at 12.2sq.m. Additional rooms that were part of the design were a waiting area, staff lounge, water treatment room, open storage area, isolation room with a private washroom and a staff hand washing sink. This concept worked so efficiently that it became the standard for the basis of 6 unit dialysis design in the province.
