TreanorHL was engaged to assist Ivinson Memorial Hospital with implementing strategic design to raise the bar for the level of outpatient services provided in the greater Laramie area. The hospital needed to demolish an existing, outdated campus building to make way for a new medical office building to house its growing outpatient service lines, including oncology, imaging, primary care and specialty clinics. It was integral for the new facility to optimize functionality and flow for care providers, improve accessibility and comfort for patients and their families, and offer flexibility for future expansion to support growing community demands.
The new outpatient services center provides increased operational efficiency for staff, while supporting customers with a continuum of care that integrates primary care services with multiple specialists. Connectors in the parking garage and on level two serve to link the new MOB with the existing hospital, providing improved access and integration. A remodeled and expanded entry area including lobby, admitting, and waiting areas extends a welcoming sense of arrival while underground and above ground parking areas offer clear and convenient access into the building. After roughly 4,000 SF of renovations, the cancer center offers improved patient and provider flows and can now service patients more efficiently. Updates to the laboratories and imaging department also made better use of space to improve functionality for staff, as well as incorporate more modern technology.
Design decisions were made to provide the hospital with the future option to expand upward and add another level to the MOB. Required infrastructure was factored into the design to allow for this potential future 25,000 SF addition, should the space be needed in the coming years. Now roughly two years later that day has come and TreanorHL’s relationship with Ivinson Memorial Hospital continues as we currently design the addition of a third floor to this MOB.
