Renovating and expanding an emergency department is challenging — current needs and urgent health issues must balance alongside long-term strategies. What presentday and forward-looking items should be considered? How does a project team handle this significant task? In this presentation, representatives from Leggat McCall, NBBJ, BR+A and Skanska will discuss five ways they managed the ED balancing act to design and build the 52,000 SF expansion and renovation of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital emergency department. With design and construction efforts prioritizing efficiency, safety, security and the well-being of patients and staff, the recently completed ED will be a resilient, welcoming and healing space for many. Building off their experience, the project team will also share five key recommendations for attendees looking for best practices that can benefit most health care settings.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify current needs and requirements of emergency departments, such as expanded space and safety/security, and examples of how to incorporate them.
  • Consider long-term strategies to future-proof emergency departments and other health care facilities.
  • Discover the importance of patient and staff-focused care settings that reflect the community and elevate the human experience.
  • Assess and implement key recommendations on their own ED or health care project for current and long-term benefits.
