The Sigma Medical Group project consists of the build-out of a vacant business space into a multi-tenant clinic housing three different medical practices: Med Express, Family Practice and Pediatrics. Each medical office contains its own patient waiting area, reception desk, patient record rolling files, triage nurse office, check-out desk, exam rooms, physician offices, vitals areas, nurses' stations, medicine closet rooms, clean linen and soiled linen rooms, and general storage rooms. Each practice also contains rooms specific to each practice such as an emergency entrance, conference and break room, two minor procedures rooms and medical supplies room in Med Express; a triage nurse office, two lab stations, a sterilization room, two minor procedures rooms, and a medicine room in Family Practice; and a medical assistant' desk station and an adolescent wing for Pediatrics.
The three offices share functions such as a state of the art X-ray lab, lab with chemical analyzer capabilities and specimen analysis, a lab blood draw area, a break room, a conference/library room, locker area, and a doctor's entrance. Other space has been allocated to a mechanical room, an office manager's office and a data/telecommunication closet. The main focus of this facility is the shared common entrance and waiting areas that overlap each other and are open to each other through low walls and fenestration. The main waiting areas are unified by the storefront they share and the overhead semi-circular ceiling cloud element that unites all waiting areas and can be seen from any of the individual waiting areas. Generous natural light reachesdeep into the medical space, unifying and adding another dimension to the overall space. The design of the check-out and reception desks reinforces the unified and harmonious aesthetic of the facility.
The total project encompasses approximately 22,600 sq. ft. with Med Express amounting to 5,400 sq. ft., Family Practice totaling 6,600 sq. ft. and Pediatrics taking up to 7,600 sq. ft. This project was undertaken as a fast track project requiring dedicated effort from GLHS (the owner), Keystone Architecture Inc. and the general contractor. The project was completed within the anticipated project completion date.
