The Design Partnership designs addition at Grossmont Hospital
The addition at Grossmont Hospital Emergency Department and Critical Care Units is a state-of-the-art, 5-storey, 160,000 square foot facility. The 43-bed emergency department features new concepts in emergency medicine: computerized patient tracking and charting, integrated information systems, podular design, specialty tracks and digital imaging.
Six critical care units, with 48 beds, are designed for multiple patient types. Rooms are sized to accommodate all patients with articulating arms for all medical equipment. Two floors of progressive care are designed as telemetry and critical care step-down units, and include 64 beds. The addition replaces functions in the existing facility, provides space for new services, and meets seismic requirements.
