Demonstrating a new concept in emergency service
layout, Cuyahoga General Hospital recently opened a new emergency
service utilizing a "perimeter" corridor concept. Patients are triaged
and then access their exam room for a perimeter circulation corridor.
Staff functions are based in an inner work corridor. Development of
this concept was achieved in existing building, a significant
accomplishment for the design team. One of the advantages of this
design concept is that it allows for future growth and expansion while
maintaining the basic organizational concept.
