Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Emergency Room
This 12,000 SF children’s hospital emergency department was designed as part of the adjoining emergency department with separate and distinct entrances for both the walk up and the ambulance patient. The waiting room is overlooked by the registration/triage area and flanked by an outdoor play area. Inside, twenty-three exams rooms were designed around a central nursing core that houses the support areas with immediate access for the staff with direct visual connection to exam rooms. The rooms have same-handed layouts for ease of operations of the staff and to improve patient safety. The finishes in each room included a mural and were individualized to reflect the operations of a local business that is sponsoring the room.
