Lakewood Hospital
Lakewood, Ohio

Tec Inc. has an ongoing relationship with Lakewood Hospital that has lasted more than 15 years. Projects for the hospital include engineering services for renovations to the main lobby & vestibule, patient rooms, catheterization suite, coronary care unit and the serving line.

The Coronary Care Unit (CCU) and neighboring Intensive Care Unit (ICU) renovations included technological and comfort upgrades to the units. Other renovated areas also include Intensivist office and Neuro Integrated Care Unit entrance. The ultimate goal of the project was to improve the overall efficiency in patient care while allowing for smoother workflow processes for physicians and hospital staff. 

The CCU and ICU feature the most advanced technological upgrades available; enhanced, full-service patient rooms and an increased workspace for physicians and staff to work more efficiently. This state-of-the-art facility features an open floor plan where doctors and nurses have greater visibility of patient rooms. Advanced lighting controls on the floor and in the patient rooms allows for specialized task lighting. The patient rooms themselves have been dramatically improved. Not only do each of the rooms offer new beds, but each also features a desk area with data connectivity and computers to allow for electronic medical record charting, nurse call with integrated digital interactive TV and bed interface unit. Two isolation rooms are also equipped with HVAC controls and negative pressure monitoring.

The Emergency Room renovations included construction documents and services for the ER, Cath Lab revision, Outdoor Decontamination, a new Patient Information System, Pneumatic Tube Information System, and Tele/Data Room.

The Servery included electrical and mechanical engineering coordinated with the food service vendor providing the kitchen equipment. Provisions were made for all connections, exhaust, and ventilation of equipment for the full-service kitchen.
