Construction of Saint Luke’s Multispecialty Clinic for Saint Luke’s Health Systems has been completed. The LEED Silver-certified healthcare clinic is located in Blue Springs, Missouri.
The 38,904-square-foot, two-story facility offers a variety of healthcare options for the community by providing quicker and closer access to diagnostic and treatment services. Specialties include urology, cardiology, orthopedics, family medicine and a rotating specialty. Onsite imaging, pharmacy and lab facilities are also available. Comprehensive imaging capabilities include X-ray, DXA scan, mammogram, ultrasound, CT and MRI.
The clinic was designed with sustainability in mind, with extensive indoor air quality measures, specifying low-emitting building material and flexibility of thermal and lighting controls adding to the overall patient experience. The design team used recycled materials, energy-efficient equipment and decreased construction waste to reduce the impact on the environment. The project site is well landscaped with walking paths located around the clinic and is close in proximity to the local shopping district, effectively uniting the clinic to the surrounding community.
A major element of the clinic’s design was efficiency. The modular units were arranged to decrease travel time to patient rooms for the doctors and technicians. This design aspect allows for self-sustaining departments, since all major necessities are provided at each space. This will ultimately reduce the amount of time patients spend waiting to be seen by doctors and specialists.
Another driving force in designing the clinic was flexibility. Each exam room has the same design and a modular layout to allow for any specialty to operate in the space. The modular specialty unit can be replicated in future expansion with ease and the site has plenty of space for growth as the need arises.
