Stanford Health Care Pediatric Emergency Department Expansion
The 14,500 square foot Stanford Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department Remodel entailed the complex conversion of the former Adult Emergency Department into 1) a pediatric-specific Emergency Service; and 2) a separate adult Emergency department observation unit, with capacity for Psychiatric holding and observation.
The Pediatric Emergency Department includes 15 treatment bays with two triage areas, including trauma and occupies approximately 9,000. Emergency services are provided to pediatric patients in an environment that is appropriate and supportive to the care of children. Approximately 5,500 SF of the available space underwent minor construction to convert it to a critical decision unit for adult ED patients including psychiatric hold rooms. The renovation of these two components required multiple phases with temporary move options, and work was conducted during off-hours as means to minimize impact to the fully functioning hospital.
