Bronson LakeView Emergency Department
Bronson LakeView Hospital wanted to improve emergency service delivery and response times to its local community in Paw Paw, Michigan. Working closely with administration and staff, Diekema Hamann developed a plan to double capacity from 6 treatment bays to 12 treatment bays through 3 phases of construction. The entire renovation was planned within the walls of the existing hospital while maintaining complete operations throughout all phases.The project improves throughput, increases visibility, and creates a unified department environment.
Phase 1 converted an existing office, training areas, and locker space into 5 additional treatment bays. Additionally, a new break room, locker room, and support nurse station were created. In Phase 2, the nurses temporarily moved into the newly renovated space while construction began on a new central nurse station. During Phase 3, 2 open treatment bays were converted into 3 private, enclosed treatment bays.
