Erlanger PICU

  • Project Location: 975 East 3rd Street, Chattanooga, TN
  • Project Type: Renovation
  • Project Completion: 2010
  • Square Footage: 4474

Children’s Hospital at Erlanger is the sort of full-service facility usually found only in very large cities.  The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is designated Level III by the state, providing the very highest level of care for premature or sick newborns.  The Pediatric Trauma Team, Emergency Department and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit provide immediate, 24-hour-a-day care for critically ill or injured children.

The existing building is a cast-in-place concrete structure.  Six existing in-patient rooms were converted into fourteen Pediatric ICU step down rooms.  Entry doors to the PICU suite were relocated to bring the converted rooms into the PICU suite.  The PICU suite was separated from the rest of the floor by a smoke barrier.  The smoke barrier was relocated as a part of this project.  The existing PICU suite is 4474 SF before the renovation and will be 7006 SF aster the renovation.  To the south of the PICU suite, two rooms that were previously converted to a Lounge and Office are now being converted back into patient rooms.
