The Emergency Department at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is the largest in Missouri, in a 52,000-square-foot facility with a total of 70 beds. We have five separate nursing stations, which help improve communication between caregivers, physicians, and family members.
- The Emergency Department was built to exceed the standards for earthquake safety and is designed to be functional after an earthquake.
- Decontamination units, both inside and outside, with separate septic systems are available for biological or chemical decontamination needs.
- Non-emergent ambulance traffic accesses the building through the new sub-surface garage, eliminating ambulance-parking issues.
- A larger, covered ambulance bay increases patient privacy while easing EMS congestion.
- Convenient patient/visitor parking is available in the subsurface garage directly beneath the building.
- Computerized triage, tracking, order entry and documentation systems allow for an efficient flow of information.
