New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital wanted to create a facility that supports new workflow processes and represents a new future for the delivery of care for the old Mount Sinai (ED) Emergency Department. The project includes implementing a rapid medical evaluation unit (RME), increasing the number of isolation rooms, and consolidating departments to add hospital beds.
E4H (New York, NY) provides conception services for a new ED at the Guggenheim Pavilion of Mount Sinai Hospital. The project envisages a multi-phase renovation and expansion over a five-year period to modernize the 30-year existing ED.
The first phase of this project creates an RME unit of 7,500 square feet to identify patients ’acuity levels and treat low-acuity patients in the unit. The goal of this split-flow approach is to diagnose and treat patients at low acuity more quickly, allowing the acute unit to focus on the sickest patients, increasing the capacity of the bed in the acute unit, and improve waiting times in general.
Additional phases will include the consolidation of administration spaces to create additional space for patient treatment and an expansion of existing CT / X-ray chambers, including equipment upgrades, will accommodate a larger patient population.
