Emergency Department – Summa Green
The freestanding Emergency Department was the initial building of a planned campus development serving southern Summit County in Green, Ohio. Hasenstab Architects provided architectural, structural engineering and interior design services.
The 22,000-square-foot building includes 16 treatment rooms, along with a CT scanner and Radiographic rooms. Future plans include an addition for diagnostic services, along with a Physician Office Building. The emergency department benefits the community by providing 24-hour emergency medicine physicians who are board-certified in adult and pediatric emergencies. This facility extends the services offered by Summa Health in the City of Green at the Summa Health Center, which was also designed by Hasenstab Architects.
The building was oriented diagonally on the site to take advantage of the location next to I-77. Because of the high visibility of the building along the interstate, the building itself be designed to act as a billboard to promote the facility. An exaggerated masonry form was extruded up from the one-story building on the highway side of the building to screen the major building equipment, as well as provide a back drop for the signage that is visible from the highway.
In 2014, Hasenstab designed a 21,000-square foot medical office building for Summa Health adjacent to the new Emergency Department building.
