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.
