UCSD Medial Center Hillcrest, Level 1 Trauma Center - San Diego, CA
Our scope was to create a four bay interventional trauma suite within the existing footprint of a 2-bay trauma center. As a life-saving space, every square inch was designed to be efficient and low maintenance. Extensive user group meetings helped us design a room that would be intuitively efficient, especially when every minute counts. In addition to the medical support in the room, every effort was made to provide and environment that would be comforting and private for the patient.
"This [new unit] gives us the ability to respond very quickly... to provide the best care we can." - Dr. Coimbra, MD, Chief of Trauma
