Range Urgent Care hired our design team to perform an interior renovation of their 4,000 SF urgent care medical office. The tenant space, formerly a bank, was an adaptive reuse project that converted the facility into a private healthcare space.
Range features a new healthcare model that charges patients a flat rate of $149 to cover all in-house services, including X-rays, prescriptions, and lab work. The model eliminates patient fears of receiving large medical bills following their visit, and allows providers to practice according to what is best for each specific patient. Our team incorporated interior architecture that supports this modern approach in a space that is both clean and comfortable.
The space includes 4 patient rooms and 1 exam room and is equipped with X-ray equipment in the former bank vault. We chose to convert the vault by lining the room with lead and bringing it up to code, which was more cost effective than removing the equipment altogether. We also converted the previous bank drive-through window for patients to use for their prescription pick-up and drop-off.
A key feature of this project involved coordination with the head nurse to understand the movements of the staff and how to make operations more efficient. This included designing an iPad chart holder for easy check-in at the storefront, instead of a front desk, to make the best use of the space. As an added cost savings measure, back of house rooms were minimally improved and priority was given to rooms with the most patient interaction.
