The Feather River Hospital Emergency Department & Imaging Expansion is a significant step in the Feather River Hospital Campus Master Plan development by NMR. The expansion provides dedicated imaging capability for Emergency Services as well as expanded capabilities for Imaging in off-peak ED hours. Included in the expansion are 18 treatment rooms, a basic radiology room dedicated to the ED, MRI suite and CT. The treatment rooms and imaging modalities surround a large central nurse station designed to allow staffing levels to flex in response to census demands.
The architecture responds to the mountain setting and is reminiscent of the historic powerhouses of the nearby Feather River Canyon. Natural light extends deep into the space and skylights have been placed throughout circulation routes to soften the clinical nature of the space.
