An existing Hospital experienced a dramatic increase in the number of their Emergency Department visits. Many of these patients had a higher level of acuity and were remaining in the hospital for greater lengths of time. The Hospital determined that the number of patients being treated in their existing emergency department had far exceeded its capacity. RSG was charged with identifying space and opportunity for expansion and to redesign the Emergency Department within the existing facility and campus.

To provide the maximum level of efficiency all treatment areas were designed around a universal room concept where all similar systems and controls can be found in the same location in every room. Visibility into the rooms provided for observation and each room is single bedded to provide patient flexibility and privacy. Implementing the latest technology, each new area was constructed for paperless charting/order entry, wireless equipment, and patient and staff tracking.
