Behavioral Health Facility at Providence Regional Medical Center

The Pacific Northwest is in significant need of additional behavioral health units. Hospitals routinely filled with patients would be better suited in behavioral health units instead of an emergency room. Providence made an essential step towards addressing this issue by renovating its 1970s health wing at the Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett into a modern 24-bed in-patient facility with 24-hour service. The project features equipment that protects individuals from self-harm, an environmental design that improves patients’ moods, and specialized care to improve health outcomes.

Coffman provided mechanical and electrical design as well as commissioning services. We created as-builts of existing systems, measured pre-demolition airflow to establish existing conditions, and worked in secure areas with patients to perform the pre-design assessment. In addition, Coffman coordinated closely with the architect and owner to select plumbing fixtures and exposed HVAC equipment that is safe for behavioral health patients and proper for the building’s aesthetic.
