 RENOVATING THE NCH BAKER HOSPITAL DOWNTOWN 

EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

Click here to watch a video about why 
the community needs a renovated 
downtown emergency department.

In 2017, Downtown ER visits exceeded more than 39,700 and patients were cared for by 76 board-certified emergency medicine physicians, advanced practice clinicians and registered nurses specialized in emergency care.

The Downtown facility has not been updated in more than 20 years. Funding the $30 million renovation will deliver high quality critical, emergent and urgent care while maintaining a safe, respectful environment for the people of Collier County. Our goal is to become only the third geriatric-focused emergency department in the country.

Updates include:

• Expanding the ER from 34 to 50 beds with larger treatment rooms

• Redesigning waiting rooms to be more comfortable while featuring charging stations, office space and food options

• Improving patient privacy by with individual glass treatment rooms, replacing the current curtained cubicles

• Creating additional space in nurse stations and physician charting areas to accommodate Smart Room technology and an anticipated ER Residency program

• Rebuilding two trauma rooms with specialized holding areas and add a decontamination room

• Implementing the lean design model for more efficient flow to achieve higher levels of patient satisfaction
