Facing an influx of patients that strained space, staff, and resources at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, owner Beaumont Health set out to redesign its emergency department. Among the project goals were to accommodate more exam and patient observation rooms and create space both within the existing footprint and through expansion.

The design by architecture and interior design firm HED accommodates 114 new exam rooms, 16 triage bays, and 4 trauma bays and upgrades 127 further patient rooms and 53 medical observation beds.  The expansion and renovation project, completed in July 2019, significantly increases efficiency and organization while expediting intake, triage, and treatment for incoming patients.
