Prisma Health MD360 Convenient Care, Boiling Springs
This prototypical, multi-discipline outpatient facility was designed to enter a new market in an adjacent county. The new, 21,000SF facility that opened in Spring of 2017, meets a need for primary and urgent care in the Boiling Springs community and additionally provides diagnostic imaging, mental health, and physical therapy. The location also provides a referral source for specialists and hospital visits.
Exam Room Standardization Increases Flexibility
Because there are more primary care patients during the day and more urgent care patients at night, these two functions can easily coexist and share space. A standardized exam room that is appropriate for both urgent and primary care patients enables overflow patients from one pod to utilize the exam rooms of the other pods.
Layout Configuration Enhances Staff Efficiency
Using the Disney “onstage/offstage” model, patient and staff flows remain separate. Exam rooms form a ring around a centralized staff core containing the back of house functions. This layout configuration enables the primary care and urgent care entities to share back of house functions including the staff work areas and med room.
