A new space to welcome new life

"The main entry will have a custom mosaic mural that will be colorful, upbeat and hopeful. The first impression for visitors will be, 'You have arrived at a special place.'"
— AnnMarie Jackson, director of interior design at Sherlock, Smith and Adams, Inc.

A $3 million renovation is planned for the women’s center at Jackson Hospital, giving a fresh new look to the existing Mom & Baby Center on campus. Funded largely by the Jackson Hospital Foundation, the renovations are expected to be complete in November 2015.

"Welcoming a new baby is such an exciting time for families and we want our Mom & Baby unit to reflect the joy that comes with new life," said Janet McQueen, president of the foundation. "These renovations will give our new moms spacious labor and delivery rooms and recovery suites, while giving our physicians new state-of-the-art equipment they need to make Jackson Hospital a premier location for labor in delivery in the River Region."

Designing for women

Local architects/engineers Sherlock, Smith and Adams, Inc., were tasked with designing the new space by identifying with the female patient base and creating a look that represents women’s current tastes and preferences.

"The overall color scheme is light and airy, balanced by cheerful accents of orchid, fresh green, rouge, sky blue and aqua," said AnnMarie Jackson, director of interior design at Sherlock, Smith and Adams, Inc. "The main entry will have a custom mosaic mural that will be colorful, upbeat and inspirational. The first impression for visitors will be, 'You have arrived at a special place.' By integrating nature photography, we will be reinforcing new life and hope."

To maintain a focus on family-centered care, rooms will have a family zone with comfortable sleeping and seating accommodations. In addition to maintaining a comfortable environment, safety will also be a priority with the use of quality materials and design details to address infection prevention while maintaining hospitality like feel.

Jackson will be working alongside healthcare architect Terry Wilson on the project.

"We are both Evidence Based Design Accredited certified through the Center for Health Design," Jackson explained. "We approach our healthcare projects by utilizing current research and findings to produce the best possible outcomes. We share our expertise with the goal of increasing staff productivity and reducing medical errors while also promoting overall patient, family and staff wellbeing through the built environment."
