Bernstein & Associates, Architects recently completed an emergency department design feasibility study for a hospital in New York.
The emergency department is a key aspect of the functioning of a modern hospital. It accounts for a large percentage of admissions, and is integrated with all of the departments in the hospital. These facilities can have huge swings in patient population, and despite earlier predictions, ER visits continue to rise.
Common goals in any ER renovation, including this one, will be: reduce wait time, reduce percentage of patients who leave without having been seen, increase patient and staff safety and comfort, and use technology effectively in making this department in providing more efficient and better care.
Scope of work envisioned in this feasibility study includes: general construction, demolition, concrete, millwork, windows/glass,doors & hardware, drywall/ceilings, ceramic tile, flooring, painting, specialties, window treatments, fire protection, plumbing, hvac, and electrical.
The consulting work was well received by our hospital client.
