On August 15th, staff members of the new Outpatient Support Building at Belmont Behavioral Hospital were able to see the new facility through the eyes of the MPE & finishes team members. This "Night with the Experts" was an opportunity for staff to tour the building and learn about final design from the designers. This effort to fully acquaint staff with the ins, outs, whys, and hows of the building was the brainchild of the hospital's Director of Special Projects, Stephanie Lee. She believes that helping hospital staff understand how their input has informed everything from the new double-height lobby with specialty lighting, to the sizing and placement of windows, will give them an even greater appreciation for the building they will enjoy for years to come.
The OSB is phase 3 of a multi-phase plan for the Philadelphia hospital's total campus renovation.
