In 2004, Stormont-Vail developed a trauma program which resulted in an increase of patients with traumatic injuries. This new program - the only one of its kind in northeast Kansas - and the increased volume have changed the physical needs of the Emergency Department.

The new Emergency and Trauma Center is located on the northeast side of the hospital, north of the outpatient center and east of the Pozez Education Center.

The new construction consists of a four-story, 120,000-square-foot structure with a basement. Offices and physician sleep rooms are located in the basement. The first floor houses the Emergency and Trauma Center. An 8-bed clinical decision unit and a 12-bed critical care unit is on the second floor. The third and fourth floors hold patient rooms.

The Emergency and Trauma Center has two distinct entrances; one for ambulances and one for walk-in patients.

Four primary treatment areas include, critical emergency care rooms, routine emergency treatment rooms, a minor treatment area and a trauma resusitation unit.

The triage and registration areas are more private, and the waiting area space is designed for improved patient and family comfort.
