Mercy Springfield replaced an existing Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – South Creek building with a new building that is 1,500 square feet larger. The new 5,100 square feet clinic includes two procedure rooms and 12 exam rooms. Some of the rooms have virtual care capabilities for specialist input on patient care. Several of the exam spaces have exterior entrances and private restrooms to allow patients with contagious illnesses to avoid waiting rooms. The building also uses centralized workstations, allowing easy collaboration among providers.
The project was completed within 1% of the estimated budget on a fast-track design schedule, with multiple bid packages. From the first kick-off meeting to the clinic’s first patient was less than 12 months. The project schedule was determined based on the Contractor’s anticipated lead times for materials and working as a team to meet the schedule.
The South Creek Clinic is one of the various projects HFG has recently worked on in partnership with Mercy.
