Healthcare is often a critical lifeline for agricultural communities. In emergencies, a local hospital can make all the difference. When it comes to routine medical procedures, the convenience of a nearby medical facility improves quality of life. Located on the Kansas-Colorado border and home to over 1,200 residents, Greeley County depends on its healthcare infrastructure for continued prosperity. HFG Architecture appreciates the vital role that Critical Access Hospitals play in the health of not only individuals, but communities as a whole.
This renovated and expanded Critical Access Hospital offers a variety of necessary services to the rural community of Tribune, Kansas. Mindful of existing and future needs, departmental relationships were reconfigured, relocated, and expanded to bring the facility up to current guidelines, codes, ADA compliance, and to ultimately improve quality of services, access, and patient care. The ED will be centrally relocated and expanded to include two trauma rooms, a decontamination room, and a new ambulance garage. The Acute Care Department is to be relocated and expanded to accommodate six double and five single patient rooms, as well as one family friendly patient room with adjacent family room for hospice and future OB services. The Surgical Suite is to be expanded to accommodate a larger OR, two PACU's, and other needed support spaces. The relocated Physical Therapy space will feature a larger gym, support and storage spaces, and a Stress Testing/Nuclear Medicine Room.
