Deaconess Freestanding Emergency Department
Scope: New FSED
Location: Spokane, WA
Services : Architecture, Engineering, Interiors
The freestanding emergency department (FSED) at Deaconess Hospital is a new facility recently completed in Spokane, Washington located 6 miles from the main hospital on just over 5 acres of land in the northern part of the city. The FSED is a single level facility offering 15 private emergency care spaces, a Diagnostic Imaging Department, a Laboratory Department, and support space to provide convenient emergent care to the surrounding area. Additionally, the building is designed for future expansion to develop a satellite outpatient imaging department should the market volume indicate the need.
This project utilizes the Patient Focused Care model and treats a variety of acuities aimed at all age groups. Although not designed as an actual trauma center, the staff is trained to stabilize the critically ill and ready them for transportation to nearby medical facility should the need arise. The public and ambulance entrances are strategically placed to maintain line of sight with the staff upon patient arrival to ensure efficient and effective treatment.
