For the past several years, health care providers specializing in the treatment of neonates have been working steadily to improve the environment for premature and sick neonates in order to optimize outcomes. They have also begun to recognize that involving the family in every aspect of care not only has positive value for the family, but can improve outcomes for neonates as well. This article examines how the staff at one hospital closely utilized and married these two concepts, developmentally supportive care and family-centered care, to design a Level II special care nursery that embraces parents as partners in treatment. Each phase of design development is described, including space programming, schematic design, environmental design, and design development, as well as the successful use of a multidisciplinary team.
