RAD Technology Medical Systems Partners with Antelope Valley Medical Center on Emergency Department Addition
RAD Technology Medical Systems (RAD), a provider of custom, modular healthcare facilities, has partnered with Antelope Valley Medical Center (AVMC), a facility of the Antelope Valley Healthcare District located in Lancaster, California, to provide them with a modular Emergency Department addition.
The new addition will be 7,200 square feet and certified as an OSHPD-1 facility. The building will include 40 treatment bays, a nurses' station and support areas. When complete, the additional emergency room space will allow Antelope Valley Medical Center to better meet their patient demand of around 9,000 patients a month.
"This has been a much-anticipated project," said Edward Mirzabegian, AVMC Chief Executive Officer. "AVMC is the 2nd busiest emergency room in the State; without a doubt, this expansion needed to happen to accommodate the growing need in this region. As the only level II trauma center and ED (emergency department) approved for pediatric care, we're excited for this expansion and what it'll mean to this community."
With modular construction, the modules are constructed off site at a factory. This benefits the hospital and its community, as it will greatly reduce the amount of disruption a project like this typically has on patients and staff.
"Factory construction is underway and the modules are currently scheduled to arrive on site this winter," said Mike Kosinski, RAD's Vice President of Construction and Field Operations. "We are pleased we are able to use our modular technology to benefit Antelope Valley Medical Center and the surrounding community."
"We look forward to the completion of the ED (emergency department) expansion," said Don Parazo, M.D., Antelope Valley Healthcare District board member. "This expansion will allow for a more spacious workflow, and provide additional support to our patients."
The addition will be connected to the existing emergency department and located in part of the current ambulance drop off area. It will look and operate as though it has always been a part of the original building.
The new addition is scheduled to be fully operational this spring.
