New Bed Pavilion Announced at CDH
Spacious, All-private Rooms Designed for Patient Comfort, Convenience and Care
WINFIELD, Ill., May 14, 2007 — Today, at an event celebrating the hospital’s newly earned status as a Solucient “Top 100 Hospital,” Central DuPage Hospital announced an anticipated Fall 2008 groundbreaking for a new Bed Pavilion, featuring all-private rooms.
“All-private rooms offer myriad benefits for enhanced patient care, with additional space for more hands-on bedside care, to accommodate current and future technology, and to enable family to visit comfortably,” says Larry Bell, director of construction, Central DuPage Hospital.
Environmental concerns are also paramount in the planning of the new facility. The Bed Pavilion is intended to be built according to “green” standards established by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), according to Bell.
The 340-square-foot rooms are projected to be some of the largest patient rooms in the area. They are designed to be spacious and welcoming, with an open space and pull-out beds for family visitors, unobtrusive storage facilities for the patient’s personal items and views of the landscaped courtyard.
The Pavilion, to be located on the southwest corner of the campus, will also feature a 150-seat conference center, a state-of-the-art medical library with extensive resources for patients, families and the community and 108 additional parking spaces. The planned 202 private rooms can be expanded to 226 to accommodate future growth.
