St. Mary’s

Athens, GA

When asked by St. Mary’s to demonstrate their unique problem-solving abilities, MMA responded with an intensive 3-week charette. MMA’s response revitalized a stalled master planning effort launched by another healthcare architect that drug on for over a year without a consensus being reached. The result was a bold imaginative design that completely revitalized the St. Mary’s image, bolstered morale and enabled a CEO decision to move forward. MMA’s master plan concept provides for 120,000 new square feet without the loss of a parking spot, reconfigures outpatient traffic patterns for customer-oriented service, and provides the latest in healing healthcare environments.

When asked by St. Mary’s to redesign for a change in operational birthing concepts, MMA responded with an even more vigorous three-week effort than the previous LDR effort. The new design yielded greater program advantages than the original design including more square feet without a budget increase. MMA’s continued investigation and understanding of the issues facing St. Mary’s since the original three-week master solutions exercise allowed MMA to sharpen their pencils and create an even better benefit for the dollar. The result is a state of the art LDRP Women’s and NICU Center that is destined to gain St. Mary’s a strategic marketplace advantage in those service lines.

“I’ve participated in hundreds of architect presentations to hospital boards, MMA’s presentation is the only one I can recall where the Committee and Physicians applauded upon conclusion ” ~ Judy Smith, National Birthing Consultant`
