The existing facility is a 51,630 SF single story Outpatient Clinic. The addition provides new space for patient registration/benefits, primary care, pharmacy, physical therapy, dental, conference/training rooms and the facilities entry/lobby/waiting. Renovated areas will include radiology, lab, eye care, audiology, behavioral health, WIC, administration, medical records, and IT.
A new central axis featuring a barrel-vault skylight brings natural light to the common waiting area and the new axis simplifies the circulation within the clinic, making patient navigation easier. A renovated lab waiting area allows patients more privacy while waiting for procedures and re-design of the corridor makes access to mobile diagnostic trailers a shorter walk for patients. The new primary care unit provides twice the current inventory of exam rooms, cutting wait times and allowing providers to treat more patients.
A new office suite near the entry contains patient services available to assist with billings, follow-up appointments, additional services, and benefits. This allows the patient to receive expanded information on available clinical services, and staff are available to assist with forms and benefit packages.
