Lutheran Hospital Expanding Emergency Department
March 21, 2017
MSKTD is excited to design the new Emergency Department at Lutheran Hospital. The renovations and additions to the department will improve the experience that patients, family members, and staff have when dealing with an emergency. The total project is estimated to cost $6.1 Million and encompass a total of 28,000 square feet. The most notable improvements include:
Addition of a CT Suite dedicated to the Emergency Department providing immediate access for critical patients;
Additional private trauma rooms to increase patient privacy, comfort, and satisfaction;
Creation of a “results waiting room” to minimize patient wait times in exam rooms; and
New 8-bed Observation Unit so that patients can efficiently receive care as their treatment progresses, freeing ED/Inpatient rooms for additional patients.
Many other details and features will make the newly renovated Lutheran Emergency Department much more patient-centric! The project was finished in the summer of 2018.
