New Emergency Department Opens at DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital
- Feb 07, 2014
Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Sinai-Grace Hospital recently unveiled its brand new Emergency Department facility in northwest Detroit—a long overdue hospital addition that took two years to complete.
Expected to serve 100,000 to 125,000 patients visiting the hospital every year, the new emergency department is the largest construction project in northwest Detroit in more than ten years. It occupies 59,000 square feet of space at 6071 W. Outer Drive—more than double the size of the old ER—and features 42 large, hard-walled patient exam rooms that ensure privacy and increased comfort for patients that receive care, as well as new trauma rooms equipped with state-of-the-art lifesaving technology for major accidents or disasters that require maximum medical care.
“This is an exciting time for our beloved community in northwest Detroit, who this hospital has served for more than 100 years,” said in a public statement Sinai-Grace President Reginald Eadie, M.D. “With this new Emergency Department, our patients will have a more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing facility with state-of-the art equipment and the privacy they so deserve when receiving care from our incredible physicians and staff,” he added.
DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital’s new Emergency Department facility is part of a $77 million renovation and expansion project, designed by SmithGroupJJR of Ann Arbor, that will continue until 2015. Upon completion DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital will have an expanded Intensive Care Unit fitted with the latest medical equipment, a larger front lobby, an expanded Radiology Department with renovated CT, X-Ray and ultrasound areas located close to the ER for quick service.
