“Ambulatory healthcare is increasingly consumer focused and performed in a retail environment. Day patients demand convenience, service, affordability and high quality in their care. Evidence-based design has shown the connection between design and wellness outcomes. We focus on designs that are comfortable, safe, and support improved outcomes.”
~Stan Hayes, Principal
Bernard and Millie Duker Children’s Hospital
In response to an increased demand for outpatient care services, Albany Medical Center invested $15 million in a new Physicians Pavilion. Albany Medical Center chose Hyman Hayes Associates to plan and design the new 45, 000 sf addition and 65, 000 sf renovation.
New Primary and Specialty Care Center facility was a response to a greater need for medical services in an under served area.
To create a patient-centered, non-clinical healing environment that aims to reduce the stresses of treatment on patients and families.
To upgrade the poorly renovated facade into a contemporary medical office facility and to convert the maze of corridors and medical office spaces into three distinctive patient areas.
To fit out a floor, which had been left as shell space during an earlier surgery center construction.
Too design the renovation and fit-up of a new outpatient bariatric exam and treatment clinic in a medical office building nearby.
The goal of this project was to expand dental and behavioral health services in the Arbor Hill neighborhood of Albany, New York. The project was constructed in two phases and required careful coordination as both sites were within occupied facilities.
This 5,400 square feet facility was completed in 2016 to provide primary care and dental services to the Troy
community. The project focused on designing for two different functions – primary care and dental services - while
accommodating shared support spaces that were integrated to optimize staff efficiency and patient experience.
We became involved at the recommendation of the design architect with our role focused on providing construction administration services. But, with an urgent need to begin construction, our role was quickly changed to include developing the final design drawings.
Having Previously renovated five areas in the 19,500 SF clinic, HHA was asked to develop an expansion and renovation of the NYOH clinic at Albany Medical Center (AMC). To reduce anxiety the clinic utilizes soothing colors and wood finishes and immediately upon entering the suite patients are greeted by a large millwork reception station that balances wood grain panels with white solid surface panels to put patients at ease. The station provides ample space for check-in stations and support staff and a more private station for more lengthy discussions. A cable mounted decorative “floating” translucent panel separates the private station from the adjacent waiting area seats.
To prepare a detailed programming document analyzing the existing endocrinology
| rheumatology clinic and recording new clinic and office needs for the department’s relocation to an off-site outpatient surgical campus.
To create a medical exam suite for the hospital’s ‘Executive Health Program,’ designed to have the amenities and atmosphere of a country club or fine hotel with concierge services.
To accommodate increased demand Albany Medical Center expanded the MRI department into an adjacent radiology intake/recovery space to create a new two-MRI unit suite. The self-contained suite includes two infusion rooms, also used as post-op if patients need additional time to recover, that have ICU doors for maximum visibility; a central nurses’ station that controls all access into the suite as well as control of the two change stations and infusion rooms; clean storage; soiled holding; and a patient toilet room.
