HED, a national integrated design and engineering firm, announced the completion of the new Max and Debra Ernst Heart Center at Beaumont Hospital, in Royal Oak, Michigan in the Detroit metro area. The firm led the architecture, engineering and interior design for the 14,000 square foot hospital addition which opens to patients this month.
This new addition is dedicated to consolidating cardiac care, particularly for patients with heart failure, into a convenient and comprehensive facility. The unit includes 12 patient care rooms, an echocardiogram room, a vascular room, a stress testing room and two treatment rooms designed for outpatient medication infusion services. It is designed to treat 100 patient visitors per day.
“This kind of focused, Heart Failure Clinic is becoming ever-important to today’s patient populations, and our team is delighted to be able to provide our design skills on important assignments like these,” said David Jaeger, Principal and Healthcare Studio Leader with HED. “The design for this new space incorporates a mix of highly technical solutions and operational efficiencies that will impact the quality of care and quality of life for both the patients and providers.”
The $9 million project combines outpatient services for heart patients into one specialized clinic at the facility, making prompt cardiac care easier to access and more efficient for patients returning on a regular basis. This new unit will help cardiac patients by reducing emergency room visits and hospital stays.
