Yale New Haven ED Surge 2022

About half way into the 2021 fiscal year, it was clear that Yale New Haven Hospital needed more emergency room space… and fast.  35 new patient bays, 9 new nursing stations with an overall 10,000 SF of new space had to be completed in 3 months.  A temporary patient care annex at the York Street Campus would help Yale New Haven Hospital more effectively and efficiently manage a surge in Emergency Department (ED) patients and care for admitted patients who are awaiting an inpatient bed. 

The 35 emergency patients with less-serious illnesses or injuries will likely be discharged from the ED after treatment. The current YSC ED space would be used for patients with more serious conditions. The design team made sure to include materials that help reduce sound transmission, so as to better protect patient privacy and provide a more conducive healing environment.
