The new center will replace an existing one located nearby and will add an ambulatory surgery center where children can have same-day surgery close to home. The construction manager for the project is Turner Construction and the architect is EwingCole. The four-floor facility was designed to expand up to a total of 195,000 square feet to allow for future program growth. It includes 68 exam rooms supporting more than 30 medical and surgical subspecialties, a pediatric imaging center, a day hospital for oncology patients, a sleep center, an urgent care center and an ambulatory surgery center. CHOP's Home Care Program is also based onsite. Projects New Patient-Centered Medical Home Features Flexible Clinical Modules A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held for Saint Agnes Hospital's newest healthcare center, 40 West Plaza in Baltimore, Maryland. Formerly a Room Store, RTKL reprogrammed the 38,000-square-foot, patient-centered medical home by converting the tradi- tional retail layout into a fully functional healthcare facility. Whiting-Turner Contracting Company provided a full scope of construction services. The facility is designed as a series of fl exible clinical modules to improve patient privacy and decrease wait times. With 20 primary care providers, the multi-specialty facility will house a variety of medical services includ- ing imaging, laboratory and physical therapy. The new facility will also have designated rooms for patient educa- tion on topics such as diabetes, weight management and heart health.

Lawrence Group provided architecture and interior design services.
