Reimagining the hospital frontlines.
Emergency rooms have evolved from a place for the most dire healthcare traumas to providing all levels of care and acting as a critical safety net for much of the population.
Healthcare organizations are reframing their emergency departments around the idea that they can be a conduit for change and care model innovation, playing a crucial role in chronic disease management and controlling hospital admissions.
From triage to trauma, fast track to observation, emergency departments must provide a wide range of acuity and care, creating a level of complexity that requires design informed by operational, facility, service and clinical best practices. With high patient turnover, varied case complexity and a large multidisciplinary staff, the design of an emergency department has proven critical to its function.
Our emergency department teams have designed facilities across the globe—ranging from free-standing new facilities to complete renovations and expansions. With every project, we partner with our clients to design spaces that maximize departmental resources, accommodate fluctuating patient volume, leverage data and simulation modeling and facilitate a smooth patient experience.
