Clifton T. Perkins Psychiatric Hospital

The Clifton T. Perkins Psychiatric Hospital is a 292-bed psychiatric hospital that serves patients who are involved in the legal system. The hospital was originally constructed in the 1960s and has since undergone a number of upgrades and additions. In order to align the hospital’s north wing with the standards of the rest of the facility, STV is providing design services for the renovation of its nurses’ stations, day rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, sleeping rooms, and administrative areas -- including systems upgrades/replacements.

Modifications will include new security and fire alarm, HVAC, electrical, roofing and insulation systems, and ADA-compliant plumbing fixtures. The firm’s design will also focus on transforming the experience of entering the facility as a patient with a new secure entry that improves functional flow via an uplifting admissions space.
