Fairview Southdale Hospital, Emergency Department Expansion

Edina, Minnesota

Overview

Coinciding with the hospital's 50th anniversary, the Emergency Department expansion quadruples programming with improved triage, more patient and observation rooms, additional technology for trauma, heart, and stroke victims, new ambulance garage, upgraded power plant, and relocated helipad. Planning focuses on efficient workflow to improve patient care.

The exterior features a glass curtain wall, metal panels and undulating arc. The panels change color depending on the sun angle and viewer perspective while the arc serves as a beacon to the community when lit at night.
