Ashland, Ohio

Samaritan Regional Hospital
Emergency Department


The city of Ashland had only one hospital which was over utilized and in need of facility upgrades. It was for this purpose that Trinity was commissioned to provide a capital development plan which assessed both market demand and services demand.



Market Analysis, Operational Analysis, Services Demand Assessment, Capital Development Planning, Programming and Space Planning, Healthcare Architecture and Interior Design.


Trinity’s analysis identified a need to expand and modernize the Emergency Department and led design efforts to create an addition which expanded the department by 9,000 sf, while renovating 20,000 sf.

Our team developed a design that integrated the expanded ED with the hospital’s existing CT and radiographic rooms to avoid the cost of duplicating these facilities. A new circular entrance created easy public access and allowed department recognition from the road. Two main circulation arteries intersect under a large skylight bringing natural illumination into the clinical spaces, creating a pleasant environment for both staff and patients.  The new department provides state of the art treatment areas for OB/GYN, ENT, and Psychiatric evaluation.
