  • $1.4M Project Value

As part of an ongoing relationship with the WVU Medicine, IKM was retained to coordinate and design a new specialty pharmacy. The hospital enlisted market analysts to confirm the viability of expanded components such as injection training, individual counseling, group education, and other outpatient-based services. Once the program was complete, the IKM design team proceeded with engaging administrators, key stakeholders, and other user groups to design a new facility focused on efficient flow patterns. Those flow patterns analyzed product flow into and out of the facility as well as staff flow in formulating, packaging, and quality control of the product. The 12,500-square-foot facility provides all of the functionality the hospital identified as essential and allows for various levels of security related to the product flow of regulated substances.

An additional component was patient education. Space was designed to support training and advocacy so that patients and medical professionals could be educated regarding the appropriate utilization and application techniques associated with various new specialty drugs.

IKM engaged the stakeholders in an iterative, interactive design process utilizing 3D imagery to facilitate discussion and support appropriate decision-making that fulfilled the project goals while creating a pleasant work environment.
