METHODIST HOSPITAL OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
GYN ONCOLOGY INSTITUTE
This unique project is a remodel of an existing 3,380 square feet Psychiatric Unit to an OSHPD 3 Gynecology Oncology Clinic. The new clinic houses 2 procedure rooms as well as administration, laboratory and auxiliary offices and utility rooms. The project also included adding three (3) new HVAC units and exhaust fan, and a revamp of the existing court yard design. Accessibility improvements throughout the facility and at the hospital campus were part of this remodel project as well.
The PDA team worked closely with the user group and hospital facilities to customize the space that not only met the building code requirement but also had the wellbeing of staff, patient and their families in mind. The PDA team delivered a complete design package from feasibility study, medical planning and construction administration to providing Fixture Furniture and Equipment (FF&E), art work selection and signage consulting services.
Phase 2 includes converting the existing adjacent business office to expand the gynecology oncology clinic. The project will include 4 new exam rooms that will facilitate a variety of procedures and post-surgery incision management, a new nurse station, utility rooms, dictation room, conference room, environmental services room, staff lounge and an office with accessibility improvements throughout.
