Fort Wayne, Ind. – Monday, Nov. 22, 2010 — A small portion of Parkview Hospital’s Randallia campus has been turned into quality control rooms as a way to simulate what patient care areas will look like at the new Parkview Regional Medical Center.
Members of the media today were given a tour of the updated quality control rooms, which recently received final revisions. More than 40 teams of hospital leadership and staff have assisted in the design of the patient care areas.
Examples include a trauma room, patient corridor, acute care patient room, intensive care unit patient room, nurse’s station, medication room, and charting alcove.
Construction of the $536 million Parkview Regional Medical Center remains on schedule and on budget. Work will be completed in December 2011. The new center will open in April 2012.
