Danbury Hospital recently opened the doors to its largest construction project in its 129-year history: an 11-story, state-of-the-art pavilion, built by Gilbane Building Co. and designed by The S/L/A/M Collaborative Inc.
The new 316,000-square-foot Peter and Carmen Lúcia Buck Pavilion at Danbury Hospital includes a 35-bed medical/surgical patient-care floor, a 30-bed, state-of-the-art critical care unit, patient amenities and other improvements. Private patient rooms are larger to accommodate family members. The new facility also features a modern, comfortable, welcoming lobby and improved, connected parking facility.
The new Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Emergency Department is a 40,000-square-foot emergency department. Double the size of the former ED, it includes major upgrades including a new, streamlined triage area with innovative systems for quickly assessing patient needs and all private patient rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
The new ED features an express care area for less acute patients, a dedicated imaging center so patients can be diagnosed and treated more rapidly, a specialized pediatric unit and a direct-access heliport to expand the hospital’s capacities as a Level II Trauma Center.
