Project Description

Zucker Hillside Hospital is a 223-bed psychiatric facility known for its pioneering work in diagnosis, treatment and research of mental illness. The National Institute of Mental Health established a Clinical Research Center for the Study of Schizophrenia at the hospital, making it only one of four such facilities nationwide.

Best practice medicine was incorporated into best practice design of a replacement facility for 115 beds of the 223-bed complement. The original patient clusters of 20-24-bed units were compressed into five 19-bed units (2 adult, 3 gero-psychiatric) and one 20-bed adolescent. Rooms are all designed to flex from private to semi-private, with typical 19-bed configuration comprised of three private and eight semi-private rooms. The facility is also designed with an innovative three-corridor system, physically separating patients, staff, and visitors into three distinct circulation series.
