The Providence St. Vincent Emergency Department Expansion/Remodel is a comprehensive, multi-phased renovation of the existing emergency department located on the existing lower level of the Phil & Penny Knight Pavilion (formerly, the West Pavilion.) The scope of the work includes remodeling and hardening the entry/security/arrival zones; new fast track and results pending spaces; new and updated nurse stations and employee work areas; increased exam room counts and treatment spaces for the current pods; and a new diagnostic imaging department with three general radiology machines, two CT scanners and an ultrasound room. Also included in the project is a relocated secure Behavioral Health department and adjacent flex room spaces that allow for use as either medical or behavioral health rooms, depending upon the patient census. There will be a new and expanded staff break room area with a view to the existing interior courtyard, new locker rooms, and updates to the pediatrics area. The project will include all related interior finish, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, low voltage, security and fire protection/fire alarm systems work as required, and includes vital infrastructure improvements to support the department. The approximate square footage is 57,250 s.f.
The Emergency the department will continue to be operational and fully functional 24/7 during the the extensive remodel and expansion build. There are multiple phases and sub-phases required in order to maintain operations, as well as keep the available exam room count to an acceptable minimum number during each phase.
