When Little Company of Mary Hospital acquired an existing medical office building, they turned to PFB Architects to assist with a full remodel, converting an MRI clinic into a medical practice for 6 physicians in two suites. The new design features 24 exam rooms in groups of 4 with ample support spaces, a phlebotomy room with adjacent toilet, and a procedure room.
Existing structural walls and mechanical spaces presented design challenges for this conversion, but these challenges were overcome and the resulting design respects the existing structure while providing the physicians and the hospital a new medical office with great patient and staff flows and spaces which match the hospital standards.
Because of the challenges of existing structural and mechanical elements in this renovated building, onsite visits throughout construction administration played a key role in the smooth conversion of this MRI clinic into a functional and inviting medical practice.
