CHI Health St. Elizabeth
Burn Unit Renovation
In 2017, CHI Health St. Elizabeth became the only health care campus in the state of Nebraska to offer inpatient burn treatment. Utilizing funding from a former patient, St. Elizabeth worked with BWBR to renovate the 16-bed unit for the first time in 40 years, making the space more inviting and comfortable for patients who may undergo treatment for months at a time.
Bright blues, greens, and nature-inspired environmental graphics created by a Nebraska conservation photographer offer distraction therapy, a method that comforts and gives patients pain relief through visual interest elements. A new physical therapy room assists patients who can’t go off-site for therapy. Other enhancements include new patient-controlled adjustable LED lighting, updated finishes throughout the nurse station core to refresh the space and create efficiencies, and remodeled support spaces.
Size: 10,930 sq. ft.
