Spartanburg Regional Healthcare, Emergency Department
When Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System set out to add a cutting edge, exemplary Emergency Department to its Spartanburg campus, they chose our team for our innovation, creativity, and healthcare expertise. In an effort to accommodate up to 100,000 patients per year, streamline operations and improve patient flow, the hospital’s planning staff and our firm’s Healthcare Studio consulted with UPS to understand the shipper’s tracking technology and methods for integrating contingency plans into standard operating procedures. During the year long planning process, design team members visited 45 hospitals to benchmark patient care services. The team’s due diligence and thorough research led to a new 234,000 SF facility, including a 55,000 SF new Level 1 Trauma Center that combines advanced patient care techniques with a customer service focus for the second busiest emergency department in the Carolinas.
