Who better to design a new hospital then the people who provide care to and support the care of children, teenagers, pregnant women, and mothers.
This is why since the very first design session in 2010, we have had teams of dedicated nurses, doctors, unit support staff, clinical support services employees (i.e. pharmacy, lab, x-ray/ultrasound, respiratory therapy, physicial therapy, speech language pathology, infection control), facility support employees (i.e. housekeeping, medical supplies, food services, security, maintenance) involved in creating the floor plans and detailed design.
Hundreds of people have gathered session after session pouring through each detail of their floor plan to make sure everything is the way it needs to be. From looking at how each member will work in the space to figuring out better ways to deliver care, their passion and dedication will make this hospital all that it needs to be for Saskatchewan patients and families.
Today, as we prepare for opening day, many members of these teams remain our 'go-to' experts to make sure on-going decisions. And the work is far from over. Since early 2012, these teams have have been busy changing their processes to support the design and enhance the care that will be provided in the new building.
