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