Boyle Construction was proud to be a part of the St. Luke’s Allentown expanded and renovated emergency room to meet the community’s growing need for urgent care at the hospital at Hamilton and 17th streets.
The renovations include the relocated ER entrance to improve patient access and the addition of a new waiting area and treatment areas. The ER patient entrance was moved from the north side of the hospital, facing Hamilton Street, to the southeast corner, on Maple Street and adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance.
The 20,000 square-foot expansion of the ER, costing $6.3 million, adds 14 more private treatment areas to support the rapidly growing department.
Advanced LifeAire technology will purify the air and create negative air flow, adding yet another measure of safety from infections for patients, visitors and caregivers, a first in any hospital ER in Pennsylvania.
A special feature of this new facility (see attached photo) is the ER kids’ space that includes artwork from many children who were patients.
