Baptist Health System in Montgomery, Alabama saw an immediate need within the community for Urgent Orthopedic Care and Physical Therapy. Providing Urgent Orthopedic and Physical Therapy under one roof materializes Baptist Health’s commitment to convenient, customer-focused care within the communities that they serve.
At 8,100-square-feet, the facility utilizes a central waiting area for both patient populations to maximize staff efficiency and visibility throughout the space. As you walk into the Physical Therapy, the double-high space is flooded with natural light from clearstory windows that highlight the colorful graphics inspired by famous Alabama athletes. The gym provides ample room for several concurrent therapy sessions as well as five private treatment rooms.
The Urgent Orthopedic Clinic is comprised of six exam rooms, a provider area, technician station, an extremity x-ray scanner and a casting room with multiple treatment bays. Staff participation was integral to the overall success of the project. On a weekly basis architects, staff members, directors, and executives would meet to review design progress and discuss ideas. With speed to market being a primary goal, seamless communication between all stakeholders was necessary to deliver the project on time and budget.
