Blake Medical Center

Emergency Room Lobby

Bradenton, Florida

The project involved renovation to the existing 2,223 s.f. Emergency Department Lobby at Blake Medical Center. The space includes the lobby, entry, waiting and ER reception, children's play area, a sub-waiting area for fast track patients, and registration as well as offices and work stations for staff. The challenge of this project was to re-direct all the emergency department patients and ambulance patients to a temporary drop-off area and temporary lobby for access to this department. The HVAC unit on the roof was replaced for the entire Emergency Department. The Emergency Department had a minimal shut down when replacing the existing HVAC unit. Working with hospital facilities aided this project in completing coordination of relocating the existing walk-in and ambulance entrance to other entrances within the Emergency Department for patients until construction was complete.
