Boston, MA — TRO Jung|Brannen, a leading international architecture, engineering, interior design and master planning firm will be providing architectural and engineering services, in conjunction with Marshall Craft Associates, for the development of a replacement neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). The new 37,000 SF, 52-bed NICU will include a mix of private and semi-private rooms, as well as family and support spaces. Throughout design, careful attention will be paid to the sensitive nature of the NICU environment.
UMMC’s NICU is the largest in the state and is identified as a Level III C facility, which provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for all critically ill neonates, including extremely low birth-weight infants and those with surgical, genetic, and cardiac conditions. A specialized neonatal transport team, based at UMMC, provides ambulance and helicopter transportation for critically ill infants throughout the state.
“We are excited to build on UMMC’s premier position as a provider of critical infant care,” said Vera Van Middlesworth, LEED AP and project manager, “this replacement facility provides an opportunity to develop ground-breaking design and operational improvements for UMMC, and set the standard for future NICU development,” she added.
