UHHS Vision 2010 Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Project

Project Location:  UHHS Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Cleveland, Ohio

Client: Univeristy Hospitals Health Systems

Award Date: January 2008

Project Completed:  April 2009

Construction Cost:  $17,000,000  

Project Description:  

    The 38-room Quentin & Elisabeth Alexander NICU marked the first completed Vision 2010 strategic initiative for University Hospitals Health Systems.

    The NICU features all private rooms, family-centered facilities and amenities, advanced lighting, sound protection, temperature controls, and state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

    The project called for new construction on the 4th floor of Horvitz Tower (which houses Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital), with additional investment in new diagnostic, operating and treatment equipment.

    Construction further involved demolition of portions of the existing hospital including selected temporary measures for infection prevention and control. Renovations were completed on 25000 SF of the NICU and of selected areas of levels 2 and 4 of the UHHS Ronald McDonald House.

    This was a staged renovation project that required phasing among multiple buildings in a single complex.

    The project was certified LEED Silver incorporating the use of rapidly renewable materials throughout.

    This NICU Project recently won international recognition, as it received the Design & Health International Academy’s 2010 International Interior Design High Commendation. This project was also awarded a Bronze Citation in the 2010 American School & University Educational Showcase.

Project Benefits:  This project provided a state of the art NICU that is an integral part in the daily operation of the University Hospital Health Systems.
