New photos are just in from our project in Hawaii in West Oahu at The Queen’s Medical Center on the fifth floor. The renovation of the 14,200 square foot space added 24 patient rooms, two nursing stations and an ADA bariatric room with patient lifts, improving upon the existing level of patient care. Previously, the floor was being used for administrative offices, storage and other accessory uses. The space was completely demolished and transformed into a medical, surgical bed unit. The newly designed single bed rooms have telemetry capabilities and the adjoining restroom configurations were enlarged to improve the patient experience. The addition of the overhead patient lifts allow patients to be lifted from a gurney to a bed and from bed to a seated position and there are stunning views from the rooms including Mauka (mountains) to Makai (ocean).
Commonly referred to as the Queen’s Hospital, The Queen’s Medical Center is the largest private non-profit hospital in Honolulu. It was founded originally in 1859 by Queen Emma and King Kamehameha IV, but this location was first opened in 2012 to serve the growing West side.
