/ Stanford Health Care Pediatric Emergency Department Expansion

Ratcliff is working with Stanford Health Care to renovate their existing 14,500 square-foot Emergency Department within the Phase 1 Central Core Expansion Hospital Building.  The update to the 1979 building consists of two components: 1) a pediatric-specific Emergency Service that will be renovated once the adult service-line is relocated to its final location in the new hospital in late 2019; and 2) a separate adult Emergency department observation unit, with capacity for Psychiatric holding and observation.


The future pediatric ED will have 15-17 patient bays including trauma and will take approximately 9,000 SF of the available space. The project is intended to create a space where emergency services can be provided to pediatric patients in an environment that is appropriate and supportive to the care of children.  Approximately 5,500 SF of the available space will undergo minor construction to convert it to a critical decision unit for adult ED patients including psychiatric hold rooms.


The renovations of these two components required multiple phases and temporary move options in a functioning hospital environment.
