Emergency Care Center, Passavant Area Hospital

Jacksonville, IL

The new 18-bed Emergency Care Center was designed so each room is visible from the nurses' station. All beds are monitored and multifunctional which means the ED staff can take care of any patient condition and perform any task in any room. The additional space allows for two separate entrances and also space for triage, medics, registration, dedicated lab, decontamination area, and negative pressure. It also includes a secluded family waiting room and a children's waiting area.
