New Trinity Heart Center and Emergency Department

Now Open

On April 19, 2015, UnityPoint Health - Trinity opened a 90,000 square-foot, three-story expansion of its Heart Center and Emergency department (ED) at the Trinity Rock Island campus. The $61.3 million construction project - which is located at the front of the hospital - is the largest in the facility's history. The expansion is designed to improve patient safety and privacy, better coordinate care, reduce operational costs and accommodate increased demand. The space includes:

All-New State-of-the-Art Emergency Department (ED):

  • Specially secured front triage area
  • 22 general treatment stations, 3 built to safe room standards
  • Short-stay observation unit with 12 beds
  • Dedicated trauma room
  • General radiology room
  • CT room
  • Private elevator

Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU):

The new Crisis Stabilization Unit will assist in the staff's ability to quickly consult and treat a diverse set of patients entering the ED with:

  • Six psych patient safe rooms
  • Interview rooms
  • "Living room" area designed to be a calming, separate space with wood millwork, comfortable seating, artwork, a dining room table, and a fish tank. The calming setting is intended to help de-escalate behavioral health patients in crisis.
  • Nearby access to RYC inpatient unit

In addition to the new setting, process changes are underway to implement a new model of care called Trauma-Informed Care. The care model - which is being studied by the architect at a national level - also calls for the use of peer mentors who are certified by the National Alliance on Mental Illness and nurses and social workers specially trained on behavioral health care-giving.

Cutting-Edge Comprehensive Heart Center:

  • Four catheterization labs with one dedicated to electrophysiology cases
  • 20 cardiac treatment beds
  • Six non-invasive diagnostic treatment rooms (NIDT)
  • 26 cardiac rehab stations, which brings our heart care under one roof
  • Floor dedicated to follow-up education, staffed by dietitians and exercise specialists
  • Space to coordinate on-site care with mental health professionals
