Loyola University Bone Marrow Transplant Unit Renovation

Maywood, Illinois

The bone marrow transplant unit is part of a patient care initiative to redesign and renovate a complete Oncology Acute Care Center on the sixth floor of Loyola University Medical Center. One of the center’s four wings is devoted to bone marrow transplant patients and their families. Patients typically stay on the wing for three to four weeks. Highlights include:

  • 16,605-SF multi-phase in-hospital renovation of 6th floor bone marrow transplant suite
  • 20 patient rooms and multiple family spaces
  • Infrastructure work was completed on the 5th and 7th floors, penthouse and lower level that included offsetting of the main plumbing risers, offsetting main fire protection standpipes, a new fiber backbone from the basement and a new transformer and main panel for the building replacing the existing
  • New custom 27,500 CFM rooftop air handling unit with fan wall technology on the roof and fan filtered HEPA diffusers in every room
  • Replacement of all exterior glazing at the 6th Floor (North and East wings)
  • Unique features include circadian lighting and Lutron control system which will gradually change the light in the AM/PM to simulate the Circadian Rhythm cycle to ease the bone marrow patients
