Patient Unit D Improvements

The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS) engaged Hasenstab Architects to provide design services for limited renovations and upgrades for six patient unites at its Heartland Behavioral Health campus. The first two phases of this multi-phased effort encompassed improvements for Unit D-1 & D-2.

Design services started with reviewing and selecting specialized behavioral healthcare products to be used for a total renovation of patient bathrooms. Door hardware, plumbing fixtures, grab bars and toilet accessories were upgraded to current ligature resistant products to provide a more safe and secure environment.

Upgrades to Unit D also included renovations to the day room and nurse station, as well as the medicine room, staff work areas and a consultation room.

Subsequent project phases include renovating nurse stations, staff work areas and patient bathrooms within four additional patient units.
