The St Peter’s Hospital Emergency Department provides round-the-clock care, seven days a week for patients of all ages with emergent illnesses or injuries. A full staff of physicians, specially trained nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers, patient care technicians and chaplains work together as a team to provide patients and families a patient-focused approach to emergency care.
The expansion and addition to the emergency department at St. Peter’s created clear sight lines that encourage staff sharing and enhance crisis management and team interaction. The project was accomplished in 15 phases while maintaining full operations.
The changes in the Emergency Department have resulted in dramatic improvements in patient and staff satisfaction.
