“Every building deserves the maximum amount of artistic exploration with a considered, deliberate approach. We seek to create spaces which impart feelings that you’re a participant in something exceptional, where function leads to calm, awe or inspiration. Our core values strive to convey that quality in every project we touch, from the modest to the extravagant.” ~Fredrick Franko, Director of Design
To expand, reconfigure and renovate the hospital’s Emergency Department. The project included a 27,900-sf addition, reconfiguring the existing ED area to provide for 29,700-sf for a pharmacy, central supplies, mechanical room, dedicated imaging, and contemporary IT storage, and adding a second floor to the addition for future medical office use.
The new 36-bed Emergency Department features all single-occupancy rooms to allow for maximum patient comfort and confidentiality. New specialized treatment rooms for trauma/cardiac, SANE/OBGYN, orthopedics, isolation, and psychiatric care are included. All rooms can provide cardiac monitoring and allow for flexibility of use. Sixteen of the non-specialized rooms are grouped together for general emergency care, while six additional rooms will be grouped together primarily for urgent care. A separate 3,500-sf, eight-bed pre-admission area was part of the design. An imaging suite houses the CT Scan and X-ray for emergency room use. However, this suite is accessible from the department’s waiting room so it can also be used for outpatients when needed.
