Session Description

Geared toward design professionals and facility managers with a working knowledge of complex medical renovations, this presentation is designed as a deep dive into a relatively small yet complex project type that is rarely seen in the New Orleans region. Presented by the architects, facility managers, and the clinician involved, the challenges of using existing treatment spaces, shelled ICUs, and an existing OR to create a new regional burn unit will be presented. The UMC staff and design team programmed and designed a new burn center to include both trauma treatment and short-/long-term ICUs for varying acuity burn cases. Come hear their story and their results.
