After a full year of construction, Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital recently opened a brand-new state-of-the-art inpatient orthopedic and spine care unit. Coupled with renovations to the sixth floor operating rooms and the opening of Brigham and Women’s Orthopedic Center and Brigham and Women’s Comprehensive Spine Center, the new inpatient unit completes a project that allows BWFH to deliver comprehensive orthopedic and spine care services in one convenient location.
At an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony, members of the design team mingled with hospital staff eager to get a look at the new space. Light and bright, the new space features sweeping skyline views and a modern look and feel. The rooms are specifically geared towards treating patients recovering from spine and orthopedic surgeries with large private bathrooms and space for visitors to stay in comfort.
One of the highlights of the new space is the physical therapy gym. Located on the unit, it boasts a spectacular view of the Arnold Arboretum. This combined physical and occupational therapy space allows BWFH’s expert staff to fully prepare patients for going home. It’s outfitted with a full training bathroom including a tub, a front seat of a car, bikes and exercise equipment to begin the rehabilitation process.
The general contractor for the project was Ryan Construction and the architect was Linea 5.
