APPROACH / OUTCOME

The ER on Lover’s Lane is free-standing emergency center, part of Baylor Scott and White Health. Being an Emergency Care Center, the design and programming intent brings efficiency, security and the feeling of quality care to the surrounding community. The use of brick, stone, and other natural materials allow The ER on Lovers Lane to contextually blend into its surrounding environment.

The site design and building placement enable traffic circulation at the drop-off area, ambulance access area, and parking lot. The building program is multi-suited and currently occupied by the emergency department, an imaging department, and a women’s center, which has a separate entrance and can operate independently of the ED. Design elements include:

  1. Open and bright waiting room to provide elements of positive distraction
  2. The ED suite is designed to convert to a trauma center and offers convenient access to imaging.
  3. Flexibility for future growth is considered for services such as a specialty clinic or accommodating a second MRI by simply eliminating a wall.

The shape and massing, especially the curvilinear design, provides an important element of contrast to highlight access to emergency care within a landscape of commercial and retail businesses, a growing retirement community, and multi-unit housing at the edge of a vibrant university campus.
