| August 11, 2015 | 0 Comments

Burlington, VT – The recently completed mother-baby unit for University of Vermont Medical Center, designed by MorrisSwitzer~Environments for Health, provides 22 private rooms for new mothers. This $15.8 million project upgraded rooms that were over 50 years old, relocating them to the same floor as the nursery as well as labor and delivery rooms, improving patient transport and communication.

The new private rooms are larger and create a calm and nurturing environment for new families. Each room includes a Murphy bed for supporting partners or family as well as updated technology that includes touch pads for patients to communicate their needs to staff.

Additionally, the new unit includes border rooms for mothers who have been discharged while their babies are still in-treatment. These overnight rooms allow mothers to bond and breast-feed their babies on-site, while freeing up mother-baby rooms for other patients.
