The ED plan was developed to reduce provider steps and create efficiencies within the care process by using a self-rooming concept and bedside registration. Private patient rooms allow doctors to get a complete medical history, including sensitive information, while preserving confidentiality. Large examination areas allow patients to have crucial support from family members while being treated.

Patient-centered design

Rushing an injured loved one to a hospital emergency room is harrowing. You're assured that the doctors will do all they can to help. And at St. Anthony's, the architecture facilitates this patient-focused care.

The groundbreaking design of St. Anthony's new Emergency Department features expedited triage and admissions processes that allow patients to be examined, advised, and treated more quickly. Private patient rooms allow doctors to get a complete medical history, including sensitive information, while preserving confidentiality. Large examination areas allow patients to have crucial support from family members while being treated. Adjacent imaging and lab facilities translate into faster, more efficient diagnosis of injuries. A spacious waiting room and meditation chapel provide comfort for the parents of a sick child, the friends of an injured co-worker, or the spouse of an accident victim.
