Emergency Departments face constant challenges including unpredictable volumes and patient care assessment of varying levels. These departments work as part of a greater healthcare system which faces the need to improve efficiency and quality of care. An added concerns is for disaster preparedness for mass casualty events such as virus outbreaks or catastrophic weather.
This joint presentation by HOK and HMC will showcase changing trends in Emergency Department Design over the past 10 years. Each firm will showcase three California projects: one past project, one recently completed project and one future project. We will discuss the facility goals and the planning solutions and how these have evolved with each project.
