CentraCare Health teamed with Pope Architects to develop a master plan and implement facility updates at the Monticello campus to improve patient wayfinding, enhance organizational changes and update operational efficiency.

The Emergency Department design solution increases operational efficiency, redevelops a former ambulance bay into two trauma rooms, new behavioral health “safe room” suites to support patients in mental health crises, new exam rooms, provides an on-stage/off-stage flow, and adds a new ambulance garage. In addition, the ED will have enhanced security with the ability to go on lock-down in any crisis situation.
