University of Maryland Medical Center – Midtown Campus, Inpatient Psychiatric Unit

Hord Coplan Macht provided design services for a new 24,000 sf inpatient psychiatric unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus. The newly-constructed unit is double the size of the old unit, featuring 37 beds, an increase from the previous 27 beds. The unit features all private rooms containing original, hand-painted murals from local artists, through a partnership with the Baltimore Office of Promotion & Arts. The project contains art therapy, multi-purpose day rooms and consultation/therapy spaces. The unit provides comprehensive services to patients and is led by the team of faculty-psychiatrists from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Other clinicians include nurses, social workers, occupational and recreational therapists, addiction counselors, pharmacists and clinical nurse educators.
