NAC Architecture designed this three-story, $41.5 million addition to the existing hospital to give a new identity to Kootenai Health. The top two floors house 64 medical/surgical patient rooms which connect on each end to the existing patient floors. The first floor features a new hospital entry lobby and the new Family Birth Center. The Birth Center includes 10 LDR rooms, 18 ante/post-partum rooms, six triage rooms, two room or cesarean suite, 12 private bed spaces, Level III NICU, and staff support spaces. In addition, the project re-orients the main inpatient entry to the north end of the hospital by providing a new covered patient/visitor drop-off and a new lobby with reception, admitting, public waiting space, elevators to the upper floors and an open stairway to the second floor.
