Kahler Slater Completes Phased Renovation of Neurology and Transplant ICUs for Froedtert Health

October 18, 2017

Froedtert Health partnered with Kahler Slater to complete a 40,000 square foot, phased-renovation of the two existing ICUs, Neurology and Transplant ICUs, on two floors of their existing hospital.

By increasing the bed counts in the Transplant and Neurology ICU by 45%, care can be expedited and provided in the appropriate clinical area.

In making changes, Froedtert always strives for a positive patient experience and better work environment for staff. Some of the advancements of this project include:

Standardizing nurse servers, deployed equipment, and supplies and medications
Creating decentralized nursing at the room instead of at a single central nurse station
Designing larger rooms with more technology, thus facilitating more care/diagnostics in the room which minimizes patient transport

These strategies and design solutions are backed by Kahler Slater’s peer-reviewed, published Patient Experience research.
