Hahnemann University Hospital, Design Management of 28,000sf ER, Philadelphia, PA

In response to increasing demand for emergency services, in 2004 Hahnemann University Hospital undertook a significant expansion of its existing Emergency Department (ED). The Hospital’s main entrance was relocated to free up space for expansion. Keeping the ED in operation during construction was especially challenging, and required completion of the work in four phases over an 18-month period. The 28,000 sf project was competed for $9.5 million and includes three trauma bays; twelve critical care rooms; eight non-critical treatment rooms; three OB/GYN rooms with one equipped for isolation; two isolation treatment rooms; and two psychiatric evaluation and treatment rooms.

Working with AP3C Architects (now Eimer Design) AthenianRazak’s Michael Brookshier managed this expansion project, directing the completion of construction documents, refining interior and exterior construction details, and administering the contract for construction.
