HMN Architects continued their long-term working relationship with Lake Regional Health System (LRHS) by partnering with Lake Regional Hospital to renovate their existing hospital. The 54,000 SF renovation project was complete in May 2018.

There were three parts to the renovation project: Main Lobby, Outpatient Unit, and Family Birth Center. From a patient standpoint, the main goal of these renovation projects was to provide a more modern and efficient experience for all visitors.

The renovations were designed to set a new standard for all future projects in terms of design quality, both inside the hospital itself as well as extending to all the LRHS outreach clinics. The long-term goal was to provide a single unified design aesthetic that was highly visible in all of Lake Regional’s facilities. This aesthetic draws inspiration from the scenic lake landscape incorporating a calming palette of blue tones and organic wave shapes.

Privacy was an issue in the former Outpatient Unit because only curtains separated all the bays. HMN was responsible for creating the right balance between patient privacy and space efficiency.  The new patient bays now have full walls on the sides with a curtain at the front of each bay. The newly renovated unit increased the number of bays within the unit from 20 to 27.

The new Lake Regional Family Birth Center has bigger and more spacious labor and delivery areas. The hospital now has the capability of welcoming babies who need overnight care for an array of issues.
