Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital engaged Progressive AE and HOK for this project. The surgery expansion and renovation will be a 15,700-square-foot addition to the existing surgery suite with 19 universal prep/recovery rooms, and include a new 6 bed PACU, locker rooms, storage, offices, minor procedure room, and a new operating room. Significant infrastructure is required as part of this project that includes a new generator with electrical infrastructure to accommodate this added space. The Emergency Department expansion and renovation will replace the existing Emergency Department and becomes the new entrance and waiting for the Hospital. It will include one triage station, two rapid assessment rooms, two trauma rooms, 10 treatment rooms, an isolation room, and a psyche room. Infrastructure work will also be required to accommodate this addition that will include reworking the electrical infrastructure and emergency power.

Objective

Better meet the needs of the area consumers, many of whom are elderly, by enhancing way-finding. This needs to occur both internally so patients and visitors can more easily find the appropriate space, and externally by making the entry clear and welcoming.

Outcome

The Emergency Room and entry were renovated so a new entry is more clearly the "front door" to the complex, enhancing visitors' and patients' experience.
