Englewood Community Hospital has started construction on a multi-phase state-of-the-art Emergency Department renovation. The $10 million project will expand capacity, helping the hospital stay ahead of the healthcare needs of the growing Englewood community. When complete in summer 2022, the Emergency Department will expand the number of patient care areas to 18. This includes new Bronchoscopy and Endoscopy suites. Two new Behavioral Health safe rooms and expanded trauma suites will also be added. Phase one includes construction of a dedicated lounge for EMS crews. The project also includes a new waiting area, registration area, a private consultation room, and increased emergency support space. All systems and equipment are being upgraded for energy efficiency and reflect current design trends in healthcare. The renovation of the Emergency Department is part of the hospital’s commitment to serving the growing Englewood area. Now that the project is underway, the entrance to the Emergency Department is located on the north side of the hospital while it continues to care for patients 24/7 without interruption. During phase two, planned for 2022, the Emergency Department entrance will relocate to its permanent location on the east side of the building at 700 Medical Blvd. Photo: Rendering of the new Englewood Community Hospital Emergency Department Nurses Station.
