Falmouth Hospital Emergency Center Expansion
The new emergency room addition at Falmouth Hospital is a 24,000 square foot, 2 phase project. Phase 1 is a new addition, phase 2 is the renovation of the old ER reception area.
The size of Falmouth Hospital’s emergency center has increased from 14,000 to 24,000 square feet and features a total of 40 patient care treatment rooms.
The new Acute Care Unit is divided into two clinically flexible areas that are now able to accommodate changes in patient volumes throughout the year. Advanced clinical stations were centrally located surrounded by 29 private treatment rooms, including specialty care and trauma rooms.
Located within the Acute Care Unit is the multi-functional specialty care suite. With four private rooms and its own nursing station, this self-contained suite was designed and constructed for behavioral health patients, or those requiring additional observation and evaluation.
The emergency center Fast Track Unit is an integral part of the department, designed to facilitate the care for patients presenting with non-critical emergencies. Caregivers in this seven-bed unit are focused on treating patients quickly and efficiently helping to reduce the length of time a patient spends in the emergency department. Falmouth Hospital’s expansion included a new sub-waiting area for the Fast Track Unit.
Construction was completed in July 2015.
