Highline Medical Center Birch Wing Addition
Burien, Washington
NAC Architecture designed the three-story Birch Wing, an addition to the existing hospital, to support a future vertical expansion of three additional floors. The Birch Wing houses a 27,000-square-foot Emergency Department on the main floor; a 21,500-square-foot, 31-bed Patient Care Unit for medical and cancer patients on the second floor; and a 27,000-square-foot parking garage on the lower level designed to be converted to Laboratory and Imaging departments in the future. The Emergency Department contains 32 private exam/treatment rooms, including two major-trauma response rooms. The Patient Care Unit has 21 private rooms and five semi-private rooms as well as generously proportioned family activity and waiting areas.
