Medical Center of Powderville
Integrated Practice Prototype
The Medical Center of Powdersville ambulatory care center’s primary purpose is to be a community based primary and subspecialty care integrated group practice. It is designed to fundamentally alter referral patterns and utilization in a tertiary system’s secondary catchment markets. The experience of 500 on-staff physicians, having practiced and continuing to practice in multiple facilities though the upstate, was brought to bear in configuring the idealized patient and provider centered environments in the first of its kind group practice model for the state’s largest tertiary medical system.
This state-of-the-art, discreetly designed ambulatory care facility accommodates a group of 8 users and serves as a pioneering referral gateway for a significant joint venture with a large university medical center. The facility spans 31,000 square feet, incorporating 8 meticulously planned components. It is engineered to optimize ambulatory care processes, ensuring low operational costs, high net-to-gross efficiency, and an ideal staff-to-physician/caregiver ratio.
The design and operation of the environments are grounded in evidence-based practices, peer-reviewed and rigorously mock-tested. This ensures that, from opening day, every process, whether IT or material-related, has been thoroughly vetted for efficiency and effectiveness. Additionally, the facility is designed for future expansion along its major axis, featuring clear and intuitive wayfinding for easy navigation.
