Curry Medical Center provides this Southern Oregon region with significantly expanded healthcare services. The building’s program includes a laboratory, infusion services, imaging, and orthopedic, pediatric and family practice clinics. The hospital hopes to gain approval and funding for an Emergency Department.
Designed for operational efficiency, departments are laid-out so that staff may be shared during non-peak service times. A dumbwaiter connects the Emergency Department to a downstairs lab, reducing staff travel time and expediting patient care. A large welcoming lobby greets visitors and provides clear wayfinding for ambulatory services. The plans include a separate entrance and waiting area for the proposed Emergency Department.
