New Emergency Department for Holyoke Medical Center

By G. Greene Construction on August 22, 2015

Holyoke Medical Center selected G. Greene as the Construction Manager to renovate their Emergency Department. This Department is severely constrained due to the volume of 45,000 annual patient visits in approximately 8,130 square feet. During the master planning phase of the project, it was determined through many collaborative meetings with SMRT Architects and Holyoke Medical Center, a new building would be a better choice. The initial plan to renovate the department was discarded due to the inadequate patient drop off and ambulance drive that were causing many problems. This new footprint of 21,450 square feet will allow for ample space for patient drop-off and a separate new ambulance drive which improves the site access and traffic flow. This building will connect to the main hospital at the 2nd floor of the Memorial Building.

The New Emergency Department will house 40 treatment spaces, private rooms, and a central nurses’ station to allow staff visual access to the patients. In addition, radiology services, support space and the required storage rooms will be provided throughout.

Future growth of the hospital campus is limited with space constraints. Therefore, an additional 16,000 square foot core and shell space above the Emergency Department has been added to the scope of work.
