The new 65-bed Guthrie Corning Hospital replaces the 110-year-old existing facility in Corning, New York. It was designed to incorporate lean design features such as minimized travel distances, multiuse flexible spaces, and streamlined workflows. The new hospital provides amenities for patients, their families, and staff, including staff charting stations between patient rooms, family sleep sofas in patient rooms, and bedside room controls for patients.
