Creating a world-class neurological hospital
The Abbott Northwestern Neuroscience Institute has been providing first-class neurological care in the Midwest for more than a decade. In fact, it’s recognized as one of the best neurology hospitals in the United States. To maintain their competitive edge, they wanted to create a new in-patient care center. They needed something special. That’s why they came to DIRTT.
This new space is an intensive care unit and neurosurgery center that helps those dealing with neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. To make patients comfortable, Abbott leveraged DIRTT to create care rooms with biophilic design principles. Wood veneer-style thermofoil, nature-inspired scenes and natural light make spaces more relaxing. A meditation room was constructed to help ease patient anxiety.
This eight-floor facility will provide the level of care Abbott is known for. And using DIRTT’s fluid approach to construction, means it can adapt to the needs of patients for years to come.
Abbott wants to be recognized as a healthcare provider leading in best practices. We believe DIRTT is best practice.
