Every three months I go to one facility and have blood drawn. A week later, I go to another facility to review results at my endocrinologist's offi ce, where once a year I have my thyroid and bone density scanned. I make one more trip to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions. My day typically continues with running errands. Sometimes it's a trip to the bank; sometimes it's to the grocery store or, if I do not feel like cooking, it's off to pick up a bite to eat somewhere. I know my routines are not unique — many folks have a similar reality. Wouldn't it be nice if everything were all together: a "one-stop shop?" Good news: these facilities are becoming reality. Case in point — large, nearly 1-billion- square-foot facilities that off er everything onsite for healthcare needs, along with additional conveniences. I'm thinking of facilities like Northwestern Medicine's Lavin Family Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois. The 26-story outpatient facility off ers comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic services, along with banking and ATMs, pharmacy services, retail and dining. More specialties and services continue to be added to the pavilion. Most recently, the Digestive Health Center has planted roots there. The DHC features the latest in GI technology, advanced research, clinical services, nutrition, counseling and an integrated patient care experience. Research conducted at the center focuses on the prevention and treatment of digestive disorders. On a smaller scale, another example of one-stop shops includes convenient care clinics, located inside retail locations. Building sizes range from 30,000 to 45,000 square feet and healthcare services off ered are grouped together to meet most of the needs of outpatients visiting the facility. Coming to the market in the early 2000s, today there are more than 2,300 clinics in operation in 43 states and Washington, D.C. It's likely we will see more of these facilities in the future. This issue of MCD focuses on one-stop, integrated facilities. Not only with care delivery, but also with spaces that foster collaboration amongst healthcare workers. Enjoy the issue!
