HealthCare Today’s healthcare environment is changing. What isn’t changing is the need for spaces that are safe, patientcentered, and operationally efficient. LaBella offers a dedicated healthcare design studio, with the specialized experience of a boutique firm and the resources of a large firm. We have assembled a team of talented design professionals passionate about healthcare design and knowledgeable about its evolving requirements. Together, we have formed a studio based on best practices of the industry. Our studio has specialized experience in the areas of: •
Inpatient and Outpatient Facilities
Design for Mental Health
Design for Women’s Health
Acute Care Our team incorporates evidence-based design in creating spaces that promote healing while addressing the needs of caregivers. Infection Control. HIPAA. Security. 24/7. All delivered within a hospitality focused patient experience. Itâ€™s possible when you work with a team that understands hospitals, and the diverse populations within them.
outpatient care For most healthcare systems, outpatient care is increasingly representing the majority of revenue growth. Why? When designed correctly, outpatient facilities can deliver quality care with unmatched efficiency. Our team helps by identifying opportunities that build for future flexibility, and work with you to incorporate design and finish standards, ensuring that the patient experience is consistent with your overall healthcare system brand.
Design can elicit calm or incite nerves. Your clients deserve a private and welcoming place for medical care. We all want to be treated in spaces that make us feel comfortable. For most practices, comfort is delivered through natural light, visual and acoustical privacy, and effective ventilation, heating, and cooling.
Youâ€™ve spent time growing your practice - leave the rest of the heavy lifting to us. Our studio has the skills to design for everything from optometry to orthodontics, pediatrics to primary care and everything in between.
senior living Generational shift is impacting the Senior Living market in a big way. Is your facility ready for consumers who are living longer, are more affluent, and have new and different expectations about what they want from their golden years? We specialize in: •
Long Term Adult Care
Transitional Care & Rehabilitation Facilities
Why do seniors chose one community over another? Increasingly, amenities are the primary attraction, along with activities, independence, and privacy.
We have extensive program knowledge of the needs of specialty spaces like OT/PT facilities, hydrotherapy, and sensory or Snoezelen rooms.
Interior Design & WayFinding Our healthcare interior designers have specialized experience that ranges from large-scale, facility master planning to targeted finish upgrades. Carefully considering the maintenance implications of each material, our approach includes facility staff interviews, materials testing, and research driven decision making.
building performance LaBellaâ€™s engineering team specializes in the design of energy efficient, high performance healthcare facilities. We can provide full-service engineering and energy design services. Our team understands the many challenges faced by healthcare facilities with respect to energy savings, operations, and continued maintenance of their facilities.
Our grant writers are well versed in funding opportunities and rebate programs. LaBella has performed numerous building condition studies and commissioning projects as well as assisted in the execution of energy performance contracts (EPCâ€™s) for many of our clients. We have experience in utilities distribution, central plants, fire suppression systems, HVAC and air ventilation systems.
Infrastructure Investments in infrastructure are crucial to maintaining your facilityâ€™s essential services. With a full service team of environmental, civil, transportation and utility engineers, weâ€™ve tackled it all - from bike paths to bridges. Master planning, term contracts, expansions, and rehabilitations are all in our wheelhouse. Improvement projects often utilize our in-house asbestos laboratory and abatement designers, as well as our planning teamâ€™s grant writers and environmental review specialists.
visualization & donor relations Fundraising is a necessary part of most expansion projects. Our team has the tools needed to communicate your vision to patients, staff, and donors. Recognition walls, naming opportunities, and phased designs that allow for multiyear campaigns recognize the community behind your care.
In addition to optimizing the patient experience, your healthcare campus can be a powerful recruitment and retention tool for staff. LaBella can draw on our diverse portfolio to provide industryleading retail, wellness, and office environments.
LaBella offers a depth of expertise in our nonhealthcare studios, allowing us to work with retail or religious designers to accomplish your gift shop and chapel projects. The result? Cafes that operate with as much forethought as your operating room does. Office spaces that are flexible and ergonomic. Parking garages that are safe and efficient.
Pictured right: LaBella recently worked with Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY to develop a therapeutic garden. The 3,000 sf terrace gives patients and staff access to fresh air and sunshine by utilizing an existing rooftop. Materials were carefully selected to meet allowable rooftop loads and withstand harsh Buffalo winters. Many sustainable and custom details were incorporated into the design, including a word wall speaking to the mission and purpose of the facility. Healthcare Design 2018 Gold Award Recipient.
