Northeast Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) is a community-based care facility. As a not-for-profit, acute care, critical access hospital, their mission is to strengthen communities by enhancing patient lives and keeping people safe. As a long time client, NVRH asked Stibler Associates to again join the design team for a significant renovation.
Working closely with the NVRH team, Fleck & Lewis architects and H.P. Cummings Construction, we assisted with the design of NVRH’s newly renovated Birth Center. Incorporating a LDPR model, in which new mothers stay in the same room during both delivery and postpartum care, the center now includes six private patient rooms, an exam and treatment room, and a variety of support spaces for staff and visitors.
With each section of the Birth Center, our interior designers selected finishes and furniture that create a sense of calm and comfort, with a hospitality sensibility. To accommodate new mothers and their supporting family and friends, we wanted each room to feel welcoming—all while maintaining the necessary standards of a quality healthcare facility.
