Located on the first floor of The Memorial Hermann Woodlands Hospital, the expansion and renovation of the existing emergency center has increased capacity to 35 patients! In a multi-phased project of a fully operational facility in The Woodlands, PhiloWilke worked hand-in-hand with the Memorial Hermann team to create a Level Two Trauma Emergency Department. This renovation and expansion of an existing 15,000 SF Emergency Department to 32,400 SF promotes better patient and staff flow while enhancing the patient experience. To meet the Owner’s goals, the space was reconfigured to include a dedicated pediatric area, improve the primary treatment and trauma areas, and the adjacent observation area was designed with treatment rooms to match the ED. This reconfiguration allows the departments to share the spaces as necessary to meet shifts in the daily patient census.
One especially unique phase in the project included the addition of a helipad on the roof of the existing patient tower. This brought many new and exciting opportunities for the design team to create solutions that greatly improved efficiency for the Memorial Hermann Life Flight and clinical team.
