Master Plan, Phases I, II, and III

description

ACI Boland Architects prepared a Facility Master Plan for Clarke County Hospital (CCH) providing a comprehensive 3-phase solution to address current deficiencies and future growth needs of the community. The planning process incorporated the Hospital’s strategic goals to identify and clarify short-term and long-term visions for the campus.

The Master Site Plan input process utilized a multifaceted approach, including interviews with hospital staff in all departments to obtain qualitative information. Key documents including the 2012 Comprehensive Service Area Market Assessment, 2011 Market Analysis, and Draft Strategic Plan were used to align the hospital’s current and future space needs.

The project resulted in a reorientation of the loading dock and materials management location for ease of use and better accessibility for deliveries. This opened up the south side of the existing hospital for a 2-story, 53,000 SF addition that created a new main entrance for the hospital and clinics, as well as private-bay centralized admitting, centralized outpatient waiting area, outpatient clinic with 18 exam rooms, specialty clinics, and provider-based clinics. The basement included a new boiler room, emergency electrical rooms, and open shell space for future conference areas and growth.

The final phase included moving the emergency department to a location with a more centralized night entry and larger 2-bay ambulance garage.
