The first two clinics in the recently constructed Outpatient Services Building on the Dignity Health-YRMC campus — Vascular Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery — are now serving patients.
They are the first of services to be offered within the recently completed $100-million medical complex, said Ken Boush, hospital communications and marketing director. “Clinics and departments will open in stages through the end of January,” he said. “We started with first floor in October. All three floors should be open by the end of January 2022.”
Once fully operative, the complex can accommodate an estimated 1,000 patients a day, Boush said. Clinical practitioners and support staff will work in specialty and therapeutic disciplines such as cardiology, neurology, physical therapy, orthopedics and oncology.
The facility contains a pharmacy, laboratory draw facility, and an eight-chair infusion center. The three-story 100,000-square-foot building also includes a 450-space multilevel free-parking-for-patients garage. The garage has charging stations.
Constructed of brick and glass, the building received a LEEDS (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification. Interior space is generous, with technological innovations for the highest caliber medical care.
Access to the first floor is from either the front sidewalk facing the existing hospital or from a side entrance from the parking garage into the first floor and front desk area. The first floor also features a bistro-coffee bar and a demonstration kitchen with high-definition projection screens to permit medical presentations or cooking classes.
All three floors have large patient rooms and related medical offices. Technologically sophisticated conference areas will allow medical personnel to collaborate locally, nationally and internationally.
“The new Outpatient Services Building is an ideal home for specialty medical practices and outpatient services,” Boush said.
