The new $6.5 million Muswellbrook Hospital Emergency Department was designed and documented by EJE to enable the delivery of a modern and augmented approach to the provision of emergency care in an environment that improved patient flows and internal and external functional relationships. The design for the new 1000sqm Emergency Department promotes contemporary models of emergency care by providing distinct and flexible functional areas new resuscitation bays, treatment beds, fast track patient care facilities, paediatric treatment rooms, isolation rooms, dedicated consult rooms, nursing and ambulance triage areas, safe assessment treatment facilities, and separate staff office accommodation and amenities.

The public waiting area incorporates an innovative indoor/outdoor courtyard waiting space, which avoids the institutional experience which historically have been endured by patients and visitors in hospital emergency facilities at times of trauma and stress.
