BNBuilders is pleased to announce that after more than a year of planning and design, it has commenced remodeling the obstetrics (OB) unit at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. Designed by Interspec and Freeman White, the remodel includes upgrades that will enhance the patient experience, provide new technology and security systems, and better support nurses and physicians in their mission to serve expectant mothers and their newborns during and after pregnancy. The OB remodel at Scripps Memorial Hospital is one of numerous highly technical projects that BNBuilders has undertaken for world-class leaders in the biotech, life science, and healthcare industries.
BNBuilders recently began construction on the second and third floors of Scripps Memorial La Jolla to provide new space for expectant mothers and their infants. The hospital is upgrading the inpatient and outpatient spaces including the triage, perinatal, post-partum, and labor and delivery rooms and the ultrasound area, enhancing the level of care and comfort for their patients. The new patient amenities include a sleep-over space for family; increased seating options for visitors; new personal electronic device access for phones, iPads, and music players; and new larger televisions. New furnishings will be provided, and bathroom finishes will be enhanced. Patient privacy will also be improved.
Jamie Awford, Principal at BNBuilders, says, "Working with the nurses and Scripps staff has been extremely rewarding, knowing that we are designing and building this new space that will affect so many expectant mothers and provide essential care for them and their newborns. The new space will also better serve their support network and families, which helps everyone to better focus on what's most important—the health and care of the mothers and babies."
