The Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern and Children's Hospitals & Clinics

The Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern and Children's Hospitals & Clinics Overview

The Mother Baby Center at Abbott Northwestern and Children's Hospitals & Clinics is a beautiful new birth center that merges the labor, delivery and newborn nurseries from Abbott Northwestern Hospital with the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Special Care Nursery and Infant Care Center from the neighboring Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

Designed by HDR Architects, the new 96,000-square-foot facility offers a dedicated entrance for expectant moms and families and is focused on keeping mothers and infants together during their care in a healing, welcoming and state-of-the-art space.

In addition to our Elevator Interiors, HDR specified 37 of our LightPlane Panels, all 81” high and ranging in width from 12” to 48”. Some of the panels, which display close-ups of mums and hyacinths in vivid, cheery colors, are staggered along curved corridors in the hospital so that when viewed from one end, the panels seem to merge into one large floral image. The overall effect is simply stunning.
