UC San Diego Thornton Hospital

$6.8M / 10,000sqft 

Renovation of an existing cytology laboratory and offices into a new geriatric emergency department and radiology intake center. The remodel adds 15 new ED exam rooms and 4 observations bays with state of the art BIOS lighting for circadian regulation, sound absorbing acoustic wall panels and wall systems, electrified privacy glass, and work stations with radiused glass. The color palette for the walls/floors were specifically designed to soothe the patients that will be served at this facility. The project also includes a complete rejuvenation of the two existing 15,000 CFM air handler units that supply air to the ED.  When complete, the Geriatric ED will be first of its kind in Southern California.
