Chicago's John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County was designed first and foremost to meet the needs of the patients with the most up-to-date technology, efficient design and contemporary settings. To maximize patient-care space, the design of the Stroger Hospital needed to be space-efficient. Those involved with the new construction project selected Spacesaver mobile shelving systems and stationary shelving to help them achieve their patient service goals.
Space-efficient storage solutions were planned throughout 74 areas of the facility, with material storage applications ranging from small, high-priced vials of narcotics to large, bulk cleaning supplies.
Eight high-density Spacesaver mobile shelving systems are used in several areas of the facility including bulk pharmacy, clinical engineering, investigative drugs, narcotics vault, mammography, and ophthalmology.
Spacesaver stationary shelving is used in more than 50 areas of the hospital including bulk storage, pharmacy workroom and general storage in offices.
