Pediatric Emergency Department
Hershey, PA

Pediatric patients account for about 27% of all emergency visits at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.  Given that level of use, in 2016 Penn State Hershey Medical Center opened its new Pediatric Emergency Department, a space designed to match the high level of emergency medical care that the hospital has long provided. Staffed by pediatric emergency specialists, the department provides the full resources of Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, including access to local pediatric specialists around the clock and the region’s only Level One trauma center, in an environment specifically designed for children.

Features include:

Child Life staff available to help children cope with their medical emergency
Colors, designs and amenities that embrace nature
Child-friendly toys and games, including interactive wall-mounted gaming systems
Meals and refreshments catered to children
Family-friendly spaces

Northwell Health

,

Imbert Cancer Center
Bay Shore, NY

EwingCole worked closely with Northwell’s Cancer Care Service Line and Strategic Planning leadership to develop a comprehensive space program and master plan for a new freestanding
cancer center. A former commercial building was selected for adaptive reuse. Lean planning approaches were used to create efficient paths of movement, reduce waiting times, and promote collaborative care across disciplines. Technologies such as RFID tracking and smart cards improve the patient experience and assist staff in the efficient use of their time. Evidence-based design principles were incorporated to promote patients’ control over their environment and alleviate stress

Program includes:

Radiation oncology (2 LinAcs, HDR)
Chemotherapy infusion
Medical oncology
Imaging (MRI, PET/CT, SPECT/CT, Digital X-ray, and Ultrasound)
Interventional radiology

WakeMed Health & Hospitals

Patient Tower
Raleigh, NC

The Patient Tower is a five-story, 103-bed nursing facility located on the main WakeMed Hospital campus.

Ground and first floors house a new grand entry lobby and waiting, retail, office and mechanical spaces. The second floor contains a 20-bed Intensive Care Unit, linked directly to the Hospital’s Heart Center, and shell space for future use. The third floor is a 40-bed nursing unit.

Geisinger Health System

,

Clinical Laboratory
Danville, PA

The new lab incorporates lean planning and Geisinger’s minimum turn time. The clinical pathology floor offers a loop circulation system around open core lab functions and equipment. Enclosed containment and secure functions, including BSL-3, Microbiology, Molecular, Forensic and Toxicology Labs, are organized around the outside of the loop. Second floor anatomic pathology labs staff use communicating stairs to communicate easily with others. Lab grade access flooring allows power, data, and piped utilities anywhere below the core lab floor. Modular lab casework can be easily changed as testing technologies advance and automated testing systems are installed. A color-coded drainage system clearly separates flammable liquids from bio-waste. Anatomic pathology is laid out as an assembly line for more efficient flow high-volume operations. A “stat” histology lab connecting to the operating suite allows surgeons to interact with pathologists for involvement in the treatment stream. Third floor vertical storage saves floor space. Programmable systems offer computerized access to and control of inventory.

Siemens Healthcare

Corporate Relocation
Malvern, PA

The finished space is a consolidation of departmental groups into three existing buildings, which totals over 202,000 sf.  Each of the buildings are three stories in height, and within easy walking distance from one another.  The interior design incorporates Siemens workplace standards and brand guidelines into a modern, refreshed workspace.  One of the new spaces is the main dining/cafeteria space, located in Building 40, and includes a full kitchen and servery.  In order to meet facility demands, the dining area seats approximately 130 at tables, and can accommodate larger all-hands meetings of up to 230 in a lecture format.  While designing these new efficient spaces, a key challenge of the project was incorporating existing workstations along with new private offices, conference rooms, lobby and cafeteria.  Additionally, EwingCole created an extensive program database that allows the team to quickly perform test fits and block/stack options to accelerate decision-making.

Center for the Urban Child Medical Office Building
Philadelphia, PA

This project is a new academic clinic with active residents.  The program includes, primary care, specialty clinics, and dental care.  Throughout the facility 72 universal exam rooms are organized into 19 modular pods of 4, each with access to a staff workroom, patient restroom, and consult room.  Operational flow was vetted using Lean tools to achieve high efficiency.

 
“With the Center for the Urban Child, we had an innovative model, and we needed an innovative design team to make that model a physical reality. That’s exactly what we got.  EwingCole challenged the status quo and helped us work through options for delivery of care in our new building, to make the most of our broad range of services.  We can make a big impact on our community through this new space, and EwingCole helped make that possible.”
