Patient Rooms

More accessible. More accommodating. More comfortable.

Owensboro Health Regional Hospital's new patient rooms allow for more accessibility, more accommodation and more comfort than before. By studying nurse patterns, patient needs and effective care methods, we’ve created rooms thoughtfully designed for top quality care.

Tour Our New Patient Rooms

Key Features:

  • Larger rooms – 335 square feet
    • All of our new rooms are private, and they're 155 square feet larger than before.
    • Families have their own space to sleep, visit or surf the Internet.
    • Bathrooms have larger entrances and no steps to enter the shower.
    • Nurses have their own space to work--separate from the family area.
    • Room controls are right at the nurse's fingertips.
    • Supplies are no longer down the hall, but right in the room where they are needed.
    • There is a nurse's desk outside every room so the nurse can monitor the patient.
  • Larger door openings for bed transport
  • Patient education and entertainment system
  • Ample space to park a second bed next to the room’s bed for patient transfer
  • “Nested” bathrooms and nurse charting stations – meaning they’re not fully contained within the room’s footprint, allowing for more open space
  • Ample family space, adjacent to patient bed
  • Adequate patient care space, apart from family space and nurse working areas
  • Outboard toilet, meaning the toilet is on the exterior wall of the room. This allows for more observation and safer maneuvering to and from the bathroom.
  • Greatly improved observation of the patient via windows from the corridor for nurses while charting or preparing for care
  • Patients control the atmosphere in the room, within a certain temperature parameter
  • Increased natural light
  • Calming home-like décor
  • Better atmosphere and organization, allowing for less patient interruptions
  • Patient room designed to improve outcomes, making patients healthier quicker
