The Rochester Region has outgrown several of its Emergency Departments. As a result, patient satisfaction was challenged by long waits. “Code Red” status was a frequent occurrence. New and revised Emergency Department projects have been undertaken in multiple facilities, with master plans including similar scopes of work.
These facilities are designed to update outdated Emergency Departments, meet current needs and provides for future growth. The focus is to improve patient flow; a separate Ambulance Entry, with it’s special design elements is for example.
The Urgent Care concept has also become popular in the area to ease the overcrowding of hospitals and the reduced wait time for minor illnesses change to more relevant.
