Scott Burns, a project manager for Planning, Design and Construction, and staff from ambulatory administration, led staff from the Department of Surgery on a tour of the fourth floor of the POC on June 1. A photo gallery is available here.
The $6 million renovation project involves all four floors of the POC and will span three years, but the main focus will be on the exam rooms and waiting areas in the specialty clinics on the second, third and fourth floors.
To maximize efficiency, major renovations began on the fourth floor in January 2016 and will progress downward to the other floors. Work on the second half of the fourth floor is scheduled to start in August 2016. The fourth floor is expected to be finished by the end of 2016.
The new open space design on the fourth floor will feature one central check-in desk, a kiosk for self check-in and 73 exam rooms. The previous space had four separate check-in desks and 50 exam rooms.
Work on the second floor is scheduled to begin in January 2017, with the second part of the construction scheduled to begin in July 2017. Work on the third floor is scheduled to begin in January 2018, with the second half scheduled to begin in July 2018.
Renovations on the first floor have been primarily focused on the public spaces and are being completed incrementally over the three-year period.
POC renovations are scheduled to be completed at the end of 2018.
