Designed with Care in Mind
From top to bottom, the new Kennestone ED offers emergent care for patients and families, at every age and stage of life. The design provides benefits for patient care, including rapid access to treatment, an innovative, family-centered functional layout, and new processes and procedures based on best practices to reduce wait times, expedite discharges and enhance patient experiences.
The facility is also built with separate care zones based on medical service, level of care and age—all to better meet our patients’ needs.
The full-service, 16-room pediatric area includes a sick and injured lobby, pediatric imaging suite, isolation and behavioral health capability. A separate designated ambulance and ambulatory entrances limit children’s exposure to adult trauma patients and infection.
The ED features a separate trauma/high acuity ambulance entrance. The area includes RSve designated trauma rooms, with direct access to CT imaging and seven designated high acuity rooms, two with patient ceiling lifts.
Universal treatment rooms provide the capacity to best care for our patients. With 60 percent of hospital admissions coming from the ED, a transitional area for patients awaiting admission helps improve patient care and experiences. Patients will have admission databases completed, admission orders written, and care continued as they transition to the appropriate inpatient unit.
