Olathe Medical Family Physicians Clinic
Completion Date 2019
8,400 Square Feet
The design team was challenged to relocate Olathe Health’s Family Physicians Clinic from their current location to a newly renovated larger footprint within the same building.
Pulse Design Group anticipated the challenges of relocation within the existing building and worked with the contractor to develop a design solution that produced a larger footprint within the current facility. This additional square footage allowed more new construction and less renovation, which reduced the construction phasing drastically, allowing for a larger, newer department, in a shorter time frame and decreased cost.
The addition and renovation to the family physician department at Olathe Health was necessary to bring the undersized hospital functions up to a modern-day level of patient care and staff work flow. Roughly 8,400 square feet of interior demolition and new construction took place to support the addition of six physician spaces and 17 exam rooms. Also included within the facility’s footprint is a blood draw area and small lab, in addition to shelled space available for future procedure rooms, group meeting rooms and storage.
The available “L” shaped footprint within the current facility created a flow challenge. The design team created a simplified facility flow by separating the large clinic into two smaller functional clinics utilizing shared resources centered between them. The end result allowed the Family Physicians Clinic to stay within the allotted footprint and overall budget.
