Cincinnati Based Smith & Schaefer Reveals Completion of The Christ Hospital 3 South Unit

The Christ Hospital opens doors of spine, orthopedic and ear, nose, throat unit

Cincinnati, OH Smith & Schaefer, a regional dealer of healthcare and lab equipment and furnishings, announces the completion of its most recent project, The Christ Hospital Spine, Orthopedics, and Ear, Nose, Throat Unit. This new unit is on 3 South at The Christ Hospital’s Mt. Auburn hospital. The inpatient unit features private patient rooms with bedside computer documentation, ceiling mounted patient lifts, nurse servers for each room, and a classroom fully equipped with audiovisual capabilities for patient and family education.

“As part of the team charged to create the hospital’s ‘New Patient Experience’ we worked meticulously with the nursing staff to create a patient unit that met clinical requirements,” Smith & Schaefer account manager Leslie Gray said. “At the same time we introduced patient room furnishings that created a pleasing, safe place to heal. The central nurse station is modular for future adaptability and features an exterior clad in wood look wrapcoat for durability and cleanability.”

The Christ Hospital Chief Operating Officer Debbie Hayes said, “Our newly remodeled unit on 3 South was designed utilizing an evidence based approach with a concentration on patient and family centered care as well as the latest technologies and efficiencies in healthcare. Each room is equipped with a spacious, handicapped-accessible bathroom, soothing earth tone décor and furniture to meet the needs of both the patients and their families. We are delighted to be able to provide the patients, our physicians and our staff with the very finest facilities in which our patients can heal.”

The 3 South unit is equipped with overhead lifts and nurse server cabinets outside of each room to assist staff members in caring for patients who have had surgical procedures to correct spine and joint problems.
