SurePods recently started manufacturing and delivering prefabricated patient bathroom pods to SCL Health’s new Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. The latest addition has been designed as the “hospital of the future” and serve updated replacement for the current Lutheran Medical Center.
SCL Health has implemented innovative solutions, such as prefabricated patient bathroom pods, throughout the new healthcare facility. After its completion, Lutheran Medical Center will “Be one of the most energy-efficient facilities in the region” and “Be the most staff-efficient facility in the region” (SCL Health).
SurePods and SCL Health created a basis of design to be repeated across 187 manufactured patient bathrooms at the Lutheran Medical Center. Using prefabricated bathrooms for healthcare facilities has a tremendous impact on staff and patients, read more about the benefits here: Standardizing Healthcare Bathrooms with Prefabricated Pods.
For this healthcare project, SurePods manufactured its first walkable ceilings for all 187 patient bathrooms. Walkable ceilings will provide numerous benefits for the new hospital, such as providing a safe and easy access point for maintenance and during construction (Clean Room Technology). Ceiling insulation was also added to reduce noise and minimize disruption to future patients and facility operations.
SurePods started bathroom pod delivery to the new Lutheran Medical Center last month and anticipates completing production and installation by this fall. SCL Health announced that the facility will be officially opening sometime in 2024, with all of its operations migrated over from the ‘old’ campus (The Colorado Sun).
We are proud to be involved in the new state-of-the-art facility design and construction and look forward to SCL Health’s innovative approach to its “hospital of the future”.
