The Physician Office Center (POC) will undergo a three-year, $6 million renovation that will begin in early 2016, according to Planning, Design and Construction officials.

The plan involves all four floors of the POC but will focus mainly on the exam rooms and waiting areas in the specialty clinics on the second, third and fourth floors.

The project is currently in the design phase, according to Scott Burns, project manager, Planning, Design and Construction.

To maximize efficiency, major renovations will begin on the fourth floor and progress downward to the third and second floors.

“The plan is to work on one floor a year, dividing each floor in half, closing one half and then opening it when we work on the other half,” Burns said. “We want to minimize discomfort or confusion as things change and move around."
