The UPMC Outpatient Center and Medical Office Building in Hampton Township brings an enhanced, neighborhood patient experience to local patients. Set on a prominent corner of Mount Royal Boulevard and William Flynn Highway, the 3-story ambulatory care facility is designed to bring a breath of fresh air to the area by providing a one-stop-shop to patients once burdened with visiting multiple locations for primary care services including clinical exams, blood draw, and imaging.
The practice design approach incorporates the timeshare strategy that provides exam space to be allocated to each practice based on the needs of their daily schedule along with shared support space. The imaging center provides digital x-ray and ultra sound services. In addition, contracted laboratory services and rehabilitation services will occupy space in the building.
“Most of the facilities being relocated to this center come from a ‘strip mall’ type setting with low ceilings, crowded waiting rooms, small exam rooms, and minimal natural light,” says Tami Greene, Associate, Project Manager, AIA, NCARB. “This building offers a refreshing change of pace with spacious waiting areas in a glass atrium that lets in an abundance of natural light and provides a connection to the outdoors.”
