HHA evaluated the 18-acre site for maximum build-out of medical office space. As the anchor building, the new Eyecare Center was located at the front of the site for prominence and positioned so the entry façade and signage would be highly visible from the adjacent highway. The Optical Center and Ambulatory Surgery Center each have separate entrances with covered canopies. The Optical Center features 15 exam rooms grouped into two pods, with dilation rooms and a dilation waiting area centrally located.
Spaces are zoned public in front, patient care in the middle, and staff spaces in the back, with logical and efficient patient circulation throughout. An eyeglass shop is positioned adjacent to the entrance with maximum visibility for patients and visitors. This ASC features two class C operating rooms, two laser rooms, seven interchangeable pre-op/post-op positions, efficient support space, racetrack patient circulation, and separate staff entry and staff/service corridor. The facility was designed to quickly expand two additional operating rooms and support space. A large staff lounge with a complete kitchenette and an outdoor eating area is located off the designated staff parking and entry.
