New Space Concepts Promote Models of Care at Stamford Hospital Outpatient Medical Building

GLASTONBURY, Conn.—Doors were recently opened to a new Stamford Hospital outpatient medical building in Stamford, Connecticut.

The 46,000-square-foot renovation project was designed by The S/L/A/M Collaborative and provides modern space for a broad array of clinical services including adult primary care and specialty consultation; urogynecology and pelvic surgery; obstetrics and gynecology; a diabetes and endocrinology center including diabetes education; blood draw and radiology and a soon-to-be walk-in clinic. To help promote current and future methods of care, this project introduced several new concepts, such as integrated imaging and procedure space, universal exam rooms and multi-disciplinary collaborative work areas for staff.

The facility was designed to create a more flexible, streamlined, reliable and pleasing experience for both patients and staff. Clinical “pods” comprised of multipurpose exam/consultation rooms, staff support and physician offices support a collaborative care organizational model that promotes flexibility and team-based collaboration. Exam/consultation rooms emphasize face-to-face communication between patient and their physician while daylight-filled collaboration rooms in each pod provide staff space to discuss the best patient-focused experience.

The contractor on the project was AP Construction.
