The Design/Build team of DiGiorgio Associates Inc. (DAI) and Monitor Builders Inc. (MBI) completed the expansion and renovation of the Harrington HealthCare at Webster Emergency Department.
The newly renovated and expanded Harrington HealthCare at Webster Emergency Department has been named the “Remillard Family Emergency Department” in thanks to the project’s largest donor. The previous ED handled 12,000 cases a year – a number that is expected to rise to 15,000 in the next three years. This renovation and expansion project has increased the number of beds, increased the square footage from 3,000 to 13,000 square feet and will allow Harrington HealthCare System to accommodate the expected increase in patient traffic in the years to come.
DAI designed the new Emergency Department to include a new registration area to accommodate more patients and improve patient flow with increased privacy and comfort, separate areas for behavioral health patients, a private family waiting area, and a new ambulance entrance, main entrance and lobby. The design and construction team worked with the town planning department to improve site conditions, parking, traffic flow patterns and safety. This project also included significant Mechanical and Electrical Infrastructure changes and upgrades.
