Pickering Associates worked with Camden Clark Medical Center to design a 63,000 SF expansion to house their emergency department and new inpatient unit.

The 44-bed emergency department was designed as a split-flow model where the most seriously ill patients are cared for at the ambulance entrance and high acuity patients utilize a walk-in section. The emergency department boasts three new state-of-the-art trauma rooms, CT scanner, diagnostic room, digital x-ray facility, stat lab, and behavioral health wing.

On the floor above, a new 30-bed inpatient unit connects to the existing operating suite. The design includes 15 surgical beds and 15 advanced care beds and allows staff to move patients more quickly to the operating rooms if immediate surgery is required. All patient rooms are private and spacious, each with its own private toilet room with shower.

Pickering Associates provided complete surveying, engineering, and architectural services, guided hospital leadership through the bidding process, and oversaw the project throughout construction with full-time on-site representation.
