Designed for the current needs with the future in mind
Designing a replacement hospital creates an opportunity for a new look into operations and processes within the existing facility. Building off a long history of success within the Antigo, Wisconsin community, Langlade Hospital chose to replace the existing 85-year-old facility on its existing site, preserving the history, community fabric and connection to outpatient services houses within two adjacent buildings.
Breaking the Boundaries
Working in tandem with the Langlade Innovation Team and Construction Manager, EUA began by breaking the boundaries of a traditional programming approach. Synergies between departments were established to share space and create collaboration. Patient registration processes were reinvented affecting the design approach, and a truly custom design for typical clinical departments came to life. The partnership between EUA, Construction Manager, and Langlade Hospital consisted of seamless communication as they worked together toward a common vision.
The new hospital provides a comprehensive range of services to the surrounding community that includes an inpatient unit, birthing center, ICU, three operating rooms, an emergency department with adjacent walk in clinic, and full service radiology including MRI, CT, and women’s imaging. Contemporary patient rooms offer scenic views and fill with daylight to welcome patients, families and guests. The hospital now has consistent branding, landmarks for way finding and a single entrance for an improved patient experience.
Langlade’s CEO, David Schneider, challenged the design and construction team to create the “critical access hospital of the future” by incorporating the latest in healthcare innovation, evidence-based design, advanced technology and functional utility to better serve the evolving healthcare needs of tomorrow’s patient.
