10 Medical Construction & Design | M AY/ J U N E 2018 | MCDM AG.COM The new 46,000-square-foot, two-story ambulatory facility at Howland Medical Center in Warren, Ohio was created to deliver quality care that connects patients with both physician practice and hospital programs within a single campus. The project team included Strollo Architects and Jack Gibson Construction Company. When designing the facility, areas were planned to accommodate patient traffi c patterns, optimal privacy and new technology to improve fl ow. The team chose an approach of concierge- style staffi ng — rather than a traditional front desk model. This allows staff to be immersed in the lobby space to greet and guide patients through check-in. In the space, digital kiosk and pager technology was implemented to streamline the circulation of patients. Thoughtful natural elements make the expansive waiting area an inviting space, including glass walls that allow for an abundance of natural light and warm wood slate ceilings. Small groups of strategically placed seating provide a sense of privacy for patients and their families. A soothing and nature-inspired aesthetic is carried throughout the hospital. Within the fi rst fl oor of the facility, rehabilitation medicine, imaging and a lab have been incorporated within short distance to physician practice areas that are organized in a series of pods. A second phase of development involves the placement of primary care physicians on the second fl oor of Howland Medical Center, creating a full-service facility. Projects completed & upcoming Grand Opening The Children's Hospital of San Antonio Health Pavilion - Stone Oak A ribbon-cutting ceremony was recently held for the new Children's Hospital of San Antonio Health Pavilion - Stone Oak, located in Texas. Developed by real estate investment fi rm Seavest Healthcare Properties LLC and developer Trammell Crow Company, the project team included general contractor Joeris, architect MKS Associates, Cooper-Lochte Landscape Architecture, Pape Dawson, RGM Engineering and Alpha Consulting Engineers. The three-story, 60,000-square-foot pavilion is a steel-framed and masonry clad ambulatory care facility featuring an emergency department, pediatric subspecialty care, primary care, physician offi ces, diagnostic imaging services and specialty outpatient services. The Health Pavilion's first floor houses The Children's Hospital of San Antonio's Emergency Center at Stone Oak and KidSTOP, a pediatric outpatient testing and treatment center first launched by The Children's Hospital of San Antonio in 2009. It is designed to be a convenient and anxiety-free place for children to receive medical services without having to visit the hospital. The second floor houses medical office space for independent physicians and the third floor is fully dedicated to pediatric, primary care and specialty outpatient services affiliated with physicians from the collaboration between The Children's Hospital of San Antonio, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital.
