Various Mid-Altantic Region Locations
Kaiser Permanente is one of Tec's long-standing clients. We have completed more than 300 projects over 20 years at various locations in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Completed projects range from doctor's tenant space fit-outs to full emergency department facilities. The following are a few selected Kaiser Permanente projects.
The Kaiser Medical Center is an emergency department and ambulatory surgery facility located in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Engineering and lighting design services for a major emergency department addition were completed by Tec Inc. The project consists of a 25,700 SF per floor, two-story building that is attached to a Medical Office Building. The first floor was divided into a 15,000 SF Emergency Department (ED) and the remaining 10,700 SF is Observation and Treatment area (23-hour care). The second floor is another 25,000 SF that is shell space for an Ambulatory Surgery Center.
The Emergency Department is designed as a Hospital type environment with two Large Trauma Rooms, three Major Treatment Rooms, a CT room, an X-ray and an Ultrasound Room. There are 10 treatment rooms that provide care for direct supervision by the Emergency Department staff. There are many support rooms such as triage, decontamination room and a negative pressure isolation room.
As an overflow area the, Observation area or Clinical Decision Unit Patient Care Area (CDU), provides additional space for the staff to assess patient needs. The 24-bed Observation room provides the capacity to allow patients to be under medical care and determine if they should be released or transferred to a local hospital. Both the Emergency Department and CDU have a core area of a nurses station surrounded by patient rooms. The support areas for each unit include clean and soiled utility, doctor’s offices and nourishment stations located adjacent to the core.
