EXPERTISE 

Bringing technology and wellness together to create personalized, resident-centered care

Legacy at Savannah Quarters was the first community developed as part of a regional deployment plan to meet the needs of seniors where demand for senior living is high. Efforts involved assessing the market for ideal locations and analyzing existing facilities to find optimal sites for development. The goal of each community was to design spaces that offered operational efficiency, resident engagement and satisfaction, technology integration, and safety and security. 

ERDMAN’s multidisciplinary team developed a programmatic prototype for assisted living and memory care communities to support rapid, cost-effective development in various markets. A design was also developed that limits square footage of the built environment, yet maximizes secure access to the surrounding area. Additionally, integrating technology increased convenience, connectivity, and safety as residents interact with staff and patients.

EXPERTISE 

New specialty care center delivers an innovative, state-of-the-art environment and exceptional women’s care to local community

The health system for the new Women’s Care Center had a vision to deliver the most innovative, exceptional, and coordinated care. To best support the health and wellbeing of the local community, and to regain the health system’s women’s services market share, the center needed to serve as a model for outstanding patient experiences. The goal was to ignite interest in the area, while also exciting and helping recruit leading physicians and providers.

As part of a phased approach, the Women’s Care Center has a welcoming design that resembles a spa for its female patients. It is a state-of-the-art healing environment serving as a hub for wellness, clinical, educational, and referral support. The project also includes flexible spaces with a mix of exam, consultation, and counseling rooms. Evidence-based design was also a driving factor in the project’s scope. Engagement was created with inclusive seating and technology. To enhance emotional wellness and reduce stress, the space was designed to minimize noise, define zones, offer outdoor and indoor views through biophilic design, and more. It was also designed with enhanced lighting and innovative wayfinding. As a result, the Women’s Care Center is well positioned to offer dedicated care and meet the unique needs of its patients.

Partnering to design and deliver Pennsylvania’s largest and most advanced Emergency Department

With this addition of 130,000 square feet, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) Cedar Crest Hospital’s emergency department became one of the largest in the country.

EXPERTISE 

Stunning healthcare facility doubles service volumes, increases market share, and creates greater access to care in a rapidly growing community

Proliance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine was looking to meet health demands in a rapidly growing area. As part of this major undertaking, ERDMAN was selected to identify a new site and design a healthcare facility with certain goals in mind. At a minimum, Proliance sought to triple the number of providers when compared to its last clinic, as well as increase market share and have a new ambulatory surgery center with MRI capabilities. It was additionally important to improve the overall patient experience and provide an outstanding workplace for physicians and staff. 

The Issaquah Highlands Outpatient Center created growth from a two-provider office to a seven-provider medical facility. This, combined with the successful recruitment of first-rate physicians and staff, nearly doubled service volumes. The stunning healthcare environment offers patient privacy, outdoor views of the mountainous Pacific Northwest, and state-of-the-art technology, and increases access to care. Several years after the project’s completion, ERDMAN partnered again with Proliance to complete an addition to the center.
