Hospitals  /  Outpatient/Clinics   /  Community Medical Center

Community Medical Center has experienced significant growth since opening in 2007 and needed to expand it Clinical and Surgical departments while adding to its imaging capabilities. Altus was selected from a competitive RFP process to perform Master Planning services relating to their renovation and expansion needs.

Altus conducted a 2 day on-site design charrette working closely with all hospital and clinical user groups. During these sessions we explored and discussed existing departmental space constraints, workflow/operational concepts, adjacencies and projected departmental growth needs. At the end of the Charrette we were able to present concept bubble schemes and determine a preferred project direction.

The site provided opportunity for this anticipated growth with building expansion space to the north and west, while providing for expanded parking to the east.
The project provided for a 10,000 SF Family Medicine Clinical (FMC) addition to the north. While this addition was constructed, Family Medicine was kept functional in its existing space. Once complete they were able to move with their former space being lighted renovated for use by Orthopedics and Administration. This new clinical addition connects directly to the existing hospital and is now identified with a new entrance separate from the main hospital.
