Unicel Architectural provides sealed glass units with integrated louvers to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola (SHHP)

Vision Control® privacy solution project underscores SHHP focus on optimal patient experience – Unicel Architectural today announced its deployment of hundreds of Vision Control® insulating glass units with integrated cord-free louvers as part of the new Bayou Tower expansion for the Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola (SHHP).  The 443 Vision Control® units were employed in interior doors, sliding doors and multi-panel windows in nurse’s alcoves to ensure adjustable visibility and noise reduction.

SHHP is a 466-bed acute care hospital that has been rated by area consumers as the most preferred hospital in the region. SHHP recently completed its new $52 million Bayou Tower expansion that adds five new floors of patient care units with 112 private rooms.

“SHHP is committed to providing the patient experience of the future,” said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “We are extremely proud to contribute to their progressive vision of hospital design that focuses on an optimal healing environment. Our award-winning Vision Control® integrated louvers will help ensure greater visual and acoustic privacy for patients, their families and healthcare professionals.”

Healthcare design experts, FreemanWhite architects, selected Unicel’s Vision Control® units to support their high standards for excellence. The Vision Control® units eliminate the need for curtains, blinds and other dust-collecting privacy solutions for a hermetically sealed and more hygienic solution. Vision Control® is HIPAA-compliant and a winner of Facility Care Magazine’s Top Products Awards, as well as The Architects’ Choice Award from the National Symposium on Healthcare Design.
