Elliot Hospital Unveils New Emergency Department
ecently, Elliot Hospital unveiled its expanded and renovated Emergency Department at an open house held onsite. This multi-phase construction project, which began with a groundbreaking ceremony in June 2021, officially opens to the community on June 13. The cornerstone of the renovation project included a 22,000 sq. ft. expansion of the existing building that allows for a clinically superior patient environment with enhanced privacy, and improved operational flow for staff and patients. The new center is being named the Irving and Bernice Singer Emergency Department to honor the Singer family for their devotion to the greater Manchester area and improving the lives of others.
The Elliot’s ER is the busiest in New Hampshire and is the southern New Hampshire region’s only ACS Level II Trauma center, currently averaging more than 55,000 patients per year. The expansion and renovation:
- Adds 28 new private exam rooms for a total of 32 private exam rooms, increasing privacy for a more comfortable, healing environment for patients
- Boasts three new state-of-the-art trauma rooms that provide cutting-edge technology for superior trauma care and advance our ability to treat critical and life-threatening injuries
- Provides an expanded rapid triage and treatment area to evaluate and quickly respond to patient needs with nine new dedicated bays and three new triage rooms
Built based on best practices learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, the new ER also features advanced infection control with state-of-the-art negative pressure rooms and HVAC technology. Modifications allow providers to better isolate infectious patients, increase ventilation and air filtration systems, and provide additional oxygen ports to care for an increased number of patients, making it better equipped to handle future surges in demand for care.
In addition to advanced medical and information technology, The Elliot continues to offer southern New Hampshire’s only pediatric emergency department, and embedded psychiatrists and behavioral health specialists to treat the expanding volume of behavioral health emergencies.
