Beaumont Hospital breaks ground for $120.8 million new high-tech Emergency Center in Royal Oak, Michigan.
This new $120.8 million Emergency Center is under construction, expected to be complete in spring 2017. The 125,300-square-foot Emergency Center will nearly double the size of the current 70,000-square-foot facility. The Emergency Center will be located adjacent to the current center, which will remain open during construction.
The new Emergency Center will feature 125 private rooms, 16 of which will be dedicated to Beaumont Children’s Hospital. Experienced staff members with pediatric emergency medicine training are on-site, led by board-certified pediatric emergency medicine specialists. The Pediatric Emergency Center offers direct, immediate access to Beaumont Children’s Hospital for children who require admission. More than half of the children who are admitted to Beaumont Children's Hospital are treated initially in the Pediatric Emergency Center at Beaumont Hospital – Royal Oak.
With this expansion and renovation project, Beaumont Hospital – Royal Oak will continue to be the only accredited Level One Trauma Center in Oakland and Macomb counties, which means the center can handle the most severe trauma cases 24/7.
Technology in the new Emergency Center will include:
- • Ability to monitor patients in every room with devices that can send results to medical staff in a fast, efficient manner
- • Noninvasive heart monitoring and testing equipment to evaluate heart and trauma patients quickly
- • Ability to communicate information, such as images and lab results, to caregivers throughout the hospital and physician offices via a secure instant messaging computer system
- • Handheld devices for all caregivers with all patient information readily accessible to facilitate patient care
- • Digital imaging, providing immediate imaging test results
- • An MRI machine in the Emergency Center to expedite patient imaging
