With limited resources and substantial aspirations for their replacement hospital, the community of Warren, Minnesota, wanted a facility that offered the best care available for area residents. After thorough planning, the design of the critical access hospital supports excellence in care and optimizes staffing and financial resources.
Furnished with an emergency department, facilities for minor outpatient medical procedures, imaging, laboratory, acute care patient rooms, physical therapy, and a family practice clinic, this hospital not only accommodates immediate needs but also considers future expansion. The organization of the space safely meets patient needs while retaining minimal staff, particularly during off hours to save resources.
The entire design required close collaboration for success; the project had to remain within a small budget in order to replace the deficient facility. Because of the project’s highly collaborative team, the hospital sees that every detail serves its end and accomplishes a great deal.
