dc.description.abstract The hospital of St. James in Olympia Fields Illinois was chosen as the site for a hospital renovation and patient distribution and treatment plan. This hospital was redesigned using new and innovative concepts as well understood and tested design theories, focused on creating a healthier comfortable patient focused hospital wing. The old outdated single patient rooms that were previously focused on the quantity of patients instead of the quality of care were restructured to hospice care and creating an environment of healing and positive memories for the patients and their loved ones. Design elements such as frosted glass partitions, a sofa and seating unit with coordinating entertainment and storage unit, provided the comfort of home while increasing the safety and functionality of the rooms to provided the best care and environment.
