The Patient Pavilion features:
Emergency and Trauma centerThe Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Emergency Department is nearly 58,000 square feet. It has its own entrance, spacious lobby, 66 exam and treatment rooms as well as including three trauma rooms and a pediatric-friendly area.
An ambulance garage with high-speed rolling doors is the entrance for emergency services providers. In addition–and a first for the region–there is a helicopter landing pad on the roof that allows for high-speed elevator access to the trauma center.
The rooms are strategically designed to increase visibility and access to care for our sickest patients. Placing the patient in the center of the room adds flexibility by freeing the bed from the wall. Articulated booms on each side allow for easy connection to critical medical equipment and patient monitoring.
Each room has a bathroom, internal blinds for privacy and expansive views of the City of Poughkeepsie to the east and the Hudson River to the west.
On the north end of the second floor is the surgical center, a network of 13 surgical suites equipped to serve different functions, including heart, brain, spine, knee and hip surgeries. There are two robotic operating suites and a hybrid suite for specialty cases.
Also included in the surgical center is a post-anesthesia care unit with 24 bays and a pre- and post-operative area with 38 rooms. This area is accessible from a first floor waiting room, so you can greet your loved one after their surgery.
