Construction has begun on an ambulatory surgery center at TMC HealthCare’s Rincon campus located in Tucson, Arizona. TMC HealthCare and MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate are partnering in the expansion of the Rincon campus ambulatory facilities. The project team includes general contractor Kraus-Anderson and architect Orcutt Winslow.
The $8-million, 17,000-square-foot ASC will provide additional medical and surgical services, offering a convenient and affordable option for scheduled surgeries and procedures. The one-story building is designed to include a future 3,000-square-foot expansion for future growth.
Healthcare design will be incorporated to mitigate the spread of infectious disease, including a compartmentalized lobby and waiting area for proper social distancing, hand-washing stations, solid surface counters and plexiglass screens at registration.
Sustainable features have been incorporated in the ASC building, such as rooftop solar panels, low- and no-water-use landscaping, a cool roof system to reduce heat island effects, trees to shade building and glass and the use of reclaimed water for irrigation. Additional enhancements will maximize air changes throughout the building and maintain high-filtration rates.
The building is located within The Pavilions at Civano neighborhood and was designed to tie in the community’s distinctive architecture, including the use of landscaping that reflects the surrounding Sonoran Desert and pedestrian connectivity with sidewalks, patios, plazas and bicycle paths with bike racks.
Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2022.
