HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Outpatient Surgery & Treatment Center
Location: Breese, IL | Owner: HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese | Architect: Berners-Schober Associates, Inc.
This project entailed the construction of a new hospital wing connected to the north side of the facility which houses 17 private ambulatory surgery prep/recovery rooms, 4 private infusion rooms, support space, consultation rooms, waiting areas, and a new ambulance garage.
Designed to increase energy efficiency and patient privacy, each private patient room features nearly an entire wall of windows to invite natural light and private restrooms. The rooms are also consolidated into one area to limit patient transportation across the hospital.
Additionally, the central sterile unit and support areas for the adjacent emergency room were renovated to better serve the hospital.
