The West Boca Medical Center Free Standing Emergency Department is the first of three projects Tenet Healthcare is in the midst of constructing. These free standing emergency departments function the same as a traditional hospital, although without the overnight stays.
Using DPR's Self-Perform Work capabilities, the team completed this 10,000-sq.-ft. space out of an existing shell building. It features 11 treatment rooms, two trauma bays, a triage room, ultrasound room, RF (Radio Frequency) room, CT (Computed Tomography) scan room, and laboratory. The RF room equipment is provided by General Electric, while the CT scan equipment is provided by Siemens.
Additionally, the team installed a new 300kW emergency generator, which will be able to run the full free standing emergency department for 36 hours at full capacity.
