Rx for Wellness: Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital Opens
Date:2/25/2009

ried fieldstone, river rock, and skylights in its three-story grand atrium, as well as a place for multi-denominational reflection.

Beyond its aesthetically pleasing and relaxing design, the entire hospital was first and foremost built with safety in mind.

"At Henry Ford, safety trumps all," says Christine Zambricki, COO and chief nursing officer at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital. "With this new hospital, we have an opportunity to make this experience not only meaningful, compassionate and healing, but most importantly safe for our patients and their families."

Studies have found that private rooms reduce the spread of infection, as does the hospital's air filtration system. And with nurses' work alcoves outside patients' rooms, and mobile bedside work stations, health care teams can remain close to the patient, reducing risk of injury and medical errors.

To ensure patients' and families' stay at the new hospital is as comfortable as possible, Henry Ford asked more than 2,000 people - medical staff, patients, families and community members - to tour prototype patient rooms to test configurations, colors, fixtures, finishes, furniture and equipment. Based on their extensive feedback, Henry Ford designed the private patient rooms now at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital, as well those at the recently opened $35 million Henry Ford Hospital expansion in Detroit. Of the 300 beds at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital, 191 will open March 15. The remaining beds will open in 2011.

Each room includes a view of the pond and wooded area surrounding the facility. Some other special features of the patient rooms are:

  • A quieter stay with fewer interruptions: When medically possible, patients will not be disturbed by staff from 10:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. to check vitals, draw blood or administer medication. Plus, the patient rooms do not share
