Rutland Regional Medical Center
Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit
Lavallee Brensinger Architects designed renovations and additions for the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit at Rutland Regional Medical Center. This complex project included a fourth floor unit with outdoor patient space limited to the roof of the hospitalâ€™s third floor. The design solution features an exterior patient courtyard, six private patient rooms with private bathrooms, two seclusion rooms, a quiet room, group meeting room, and dining and living rooms.
The design incorporates the most current trends for patient safety and surveillance while maintaining a non-threatening, therapeutic, and home-like environment. Unique details include safe and secure artwork in the bedrooms, residential style headboards for the patient beds, built-in seating in the common areas, and sconce style lighting to reinforce the feeling of home.
