At 2 a.m. today, the new Emergency Department (ED) and Trauma Center inside The Pavilion at Grand View Health officially opened to patients.
The new ED is the largest in Upper Bucks County, featuring 32 trauma rooms and two dedicated trauma bays. Patients can enter the new facility by following the signs off Lawn Avenue. Grand View Health is a designated Level II Adult Trauma Center.
“This new facility — plus our continued membership in the Penn Trauma Network — further strengthens the level of care we can provide to people in Bucks and Montgomery counties when they need it most,” said Douglas Hughes, MBA, BSN, RN, President and Chief Executive Officer, Grand View Health.
In addition to the expanded facilities inside the Pavilion, the ED and Trauma Center features a new rooftop helipad, allowing for faster transitions for patients who arrive via helicopter.
The new ED and Trauma Center are part of the six-story, 190,000-square-foot Pavilion at Grand View Health, the largest expansion project in the hospital’s 110-year history. The Main Entrance, Radiology and Imaging services opened inside the Pavilion on Monday, April 24.
Additional healthcare services within The Pavilion will come online throughout the spring and summer months, including 52 private patient smart rooms and 10 new operating rooms.
