Spokane hospital renovations expand pediatric and adult healthcare
Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and Children’s Hospital in Spokane, Wash., is constructing a new 28,000-sf emergency department with a new 24-hour entry for pediatric and adult care. Expansions include 24,000 sf of new construction, totaling $18.6 million, with a red-clad second story that will house a children’s treehouse, or clubhouse, for patients and their families to relax in. Fifteen exam rooms, two treatment rooms, a trauma bay, and a medical mental health room round out the plans for the pediatric department, which has been designed for 27,000 patient visits a year. DCI Engineers (civil engineering), Bouton Construction, and Mahlum Architects form the Building Team.
