Euclid Hospital Emergency Department

Euclid, Ohio    map
Status: Complete

In 2007, Westlake Reed Leskosky completed a $4.8 million expansion of the Emergency Department for this 371-bed hospital. The expanded Emergency Department provides 13 new exam rooms, a new two-bay trauma room, decontamination room, and 7 renovated exam spaces. Organized with the exam rooms surrounding a central staff work core, the design allows surveillance of all rooms, the ability to allocate space to specialized functions, and expedites the time patients spend in the department. The new ED entry also functions as the hospital's second "front door," serving as an ambulatory surgery access and after hours patient/visitor admitting entrance. The design simplifies wayfinding and orientation, separates ambulance traffic, and creates an inviting entry for the hospital with ample natural light and amenities.
