The Behavioral Health Pavilion at Nationwide Children’s consists of eight occupied floors and a mechanical and electrical equipment penthouse above-grade, plus one below-grade floor. Occupied areas include out-patient services, in-patient services, imaging, pharmacy, laboratory, gym/recreation therapy, medical offices, kitchen/cafeteria and reception/waiting. In-patient areas for young children and teens include crisis observation and developmental disabilities treatment. Out-patient services include an emergency department for patients having a non-medical primary service need, day hospital-type immersion programs, nutrition services and imaging
The design of the patient areas emphasized safety with a non-institutional appearance. For example, patient room water and power supplies can be shut off by the nurses using a hand-held tablet.
HAWA provided mechanical, electrical and IT infrastructure design services. At the completion of construction, we performed functional commissioning of the mechanical and electrical systems to document that the systems were functioning as designed.
