Sacred Heart announces Emergency Department expansion

Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital has announced that construction on a new Emergency Department will begin next week.

The expansion of Spokane's busiest Emergency Department (ED) will include more than 14,000 new square feet and the remodeling of nearly 4,000 square feet of existing space. A number of features will enhance the care Sacred Heart provides to both children and adults in need of triaging and treatment, including:
• completely separate treatment areas for adult and pediatric patients and families;
• 15 additional emergency exam rooms;
• a psychiatry triage room for pediatric patients;
• a seven-room mental health care holding area for adults;
• a dedicated trauma room for children
• a kids' clubhouse for siblings of pediatric patients and children of adult patients;
• an atrium and coffee bar; and
• larger, more comfortable waiting areas.

Construction is expected to last 17 months, with a total cost of $18.6 million. Mahlum Architects of Seattle and Bouten Construction of Spokane are partnering on the project. The first step in construction will be the creation of a new temporary entrance. Patients will still come to the same general location, near the corner of 8th Avenue and Division Street, and because parking will be limited, Sacred Heart is providing valet services for patients and families needing emergency care.
