• St. Joseph Campus/Sisters of Charity Hospital — Ambulatory Surgery Unit


Kideney Architects was contracted by Catholic Health for the renovation and addition to the surgical department at Sisters of Charity Hospital’s St. Joseph Campus. This project included a new ambulatory surgery suite for three new ambulatory operating rooms. One of the primary goals of this project was to provide a sensitive and caring environment for ambulatory pediatric patients and families. A key feature was a series of six private, fully enclosed holding/recovery bays. This project also included a new waiting room addition and a two-stop elevator connecting directly to the ground floor main entrance lobby/reception area.
