Competing hospital systems partnered to create an outpatient campus that addressed the growing needs for clinics, urgent care, Imaging and Endoscopy services in the community. The facility was designed to straddle the county lines that delineated hospital service area; therefore bifurcating the services between the two hospitals.
Distributing the services across the county line took ingenuity and clarity of codes and regulations to properly configure the departments and spaces. Working with authorities to confirm decisions prior to submission assisted in confidence the project could proceed.
The finished product is a facility shared by two healthcare systems in a symbiotic nature to achieve the needs of the community.
