The Flanzer Center for Emergencies and Critical Care at White Plains Hospital
White Plains, New York
Named for Louis and Gloria Flanzer, who made the first major contribution toward its construction, The Flanzer Center for Emergencies and Critical Care at White Plains Hospital is a 5-story, 86,000 square foot addition that provides patient-focused care in an expanded and renovated setting that stresses comfort and privacy while offering state-of-the-art emergency care. This new wing of White Plains Hospital has features designed to accommodate patients with a wide range of problems and is the busiest emergency center in Westchester County, seeing over 55,000 visits a year.
Among its features: an emergency room with an expanded area for trauma and cardiac care and specialized obstetrics, pediatrics, orthopedic, and psychiatric areas, plus a "fast track" for prompt treatment of minor injuries; a family health center, which functions as a clinic for community members; a cardiology diagnostic center, an endoscopy unit, ambulatory surgery unit, a physical therapy area, a psychiatric unit, and 34 rooms for children or adults.
The addition of The Flanzer Center called for light fixtures to provide adequate lighting for pedestrian sidewalks. It also required secondary wall mount fixtures to increase light levels for security cameras, highlight walkways, and direct light onto the building's façade. The Selux Saturn fixture provided the perfect solution for all the above.
