Mount Sinai Hospital New York wanted to create a facility that would support new workflows and represent a new future for providing care to the Mount Sinai Emergency Department (ED). The project includes the implementation of the Rapid Medical Evaluation Unit (RME), increasing the number of isolation rooms, and merging departments to add inpatient beds.

E4H (New York, NY) provides design services for the new emergency department in the Guggenheim Wing at Mount Sinai Hospital. The project includes a multi-stage renovation and five-year expansion to modernize the existing 30-year-old ED.

Phase 1 of this project establishes a 7,500-square-foot RME unit to quantify patient acute levels and treat critically ill patients within the unit The goal of this streamlined approach is to diagnose and treat critically ill patients faster, allowing the acute unit to focus on the sickest patients, increasing Bed capacity in the acute unit, improving overall waiting times.

Additional phases will include consolidation of management spaces to create additional space for patient treatment and expansion of existing CT/X-ray rooms, including equipment upgrades, and will accommodate a larger number of patients.
