Norton Healthcare Inc. (Louisville, Ky.) has completed a renovation of the fourth floor of Norton Children’s Hospital into the Jennifer Lawrence Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), a specialized unit for pediatric heart patients requiring intensive care.
The new unit houses three neonatal rooms and 14 private CICU patient rooms, in addition to a new family space.
The CICU redesign is part of a multiphased, $78.3 million makeover of the 300-bed hospital, which includes moving and renovating a 24-bed medical and surgical unit and remodeling the pediatric intensive care unit. The neonatal intensive care unit, which opened in February, was also part of the project. The entire renovation project is expected to be completed in 2022.
DesignGroup (Columbus, Ohio) is the architecture and design firm on the project.
