Manahawkin, New Jersey
TOTAL SQUARE FOOTAGE:
30,000 sq. ft.
Torcon was the Construction Manager for an expansion and renovation of an operating Emergency Department at Southern Ocean Medical Center for Meridian Health. This project expands and reorganizes an existing emergency department with the focus on improving the delivery of medical care. The emergency department expansion will be completed in two phases. The first phase is the largest portion of the renovation and expansion, and included a new area for treating pediatric emergencies. The second phase included an area for behavioral health emergency treatment.
The project creates separate areas for traditional ED, fastrack, pediatric, and behavioral health services, while linking them in an efficient layout.
This is the largest building project in the history of the Medical Center, that will more than triple the size of Southern Ocean’s current ED, from 8,800 square feet to 29,000 square feet.
Expanded triage and fast track areas help doctors and nurses provide better care and better service.
The new design features 42 larger private bays. Space was designed just for behavioral health patients that will be discreet, separate, and secure. Children get their own area, too, with a special family-friendly waiting area in the ED. And a five-bed pediatric care center will provide top-quality care for pediatric emergencies and for children recovering from surgery, as well as routine medical issues.
