MultiCare Auburn Medical Center Behavioral Health Unit

Auburn, WA

This extensive remodel converted an existing patient care unit at Auburn Medical Center into a 20-bed adult behavioral health inpatient unit. The unit offers services to patients on both an involuntary and voluntary basis.

While the remodel kept the basic footprint/perimeter (patient bedrooms) of the existing unit,  it added all the required social and therapy spaces to support this patient population.  In addition to hardening and specifying all the anti-ligature/self-harm preventative fixtures and surfaces, bright colors, natural daylighting, and open social areas were incorporated in the state-of-the-art unit.
