Architect: Earl Swensson Associates, Inc.

Description: The Northside Medical Center project featured an addition that created a new outpatient and visitor "front door" to Northside Medical Center. The new “front door” serves as a way to simplify way-finding in the hospital. A new 21-bay outpatient surgery addition on the 1st floor ties directly to the surgery suite and can be accessed by new elevators off the new main lobby. Renovations to the ED and the Endoscopy departments were performed to increase efficiencies in the departments. The emergency department now boasts "hard-walled" exam rooms, and new trauma rooms. The Endoscopy department also has a new main waiting /reception area, accessible by the new elevators in the main lobby.
