Mercy Anderson ED Opens

The Grand Opening was recently held to celebrate and announce the completion of the Mercy Anderson Emergency Department expansion project. The Emergency Department is the new "Front Door" to the Hospital, and will accommodate nearly 60,000 patients per year, a 26% increase in patient capacity. GBBN worked with the Mercy Anderson Team to design an expanded Emergency Department that will enable its staff to provide quick and efficient care to patient's needs, while keeping the patients comfortable and ensuring their privacy.

Changes to the facility include an expanded, more comfortable family waiting area, enlarged and redesigned patient treatment rooms optimized for medical efficiency and patient comfort, and an expanded central nursing station - three times larger than before to enhance the staff's ability to carry out critical tasks and improve communication between caregivers, physicians and family members.
