Project Challenges and Outcomes

Challenges

DLA+ was tasked by Castlebrook Development to design the shell and core for the 71,200 SF facility for Heritage Valley Health System's Valley Medical Center offices. We were retained to program and design the interior medical office and surgery center spaces.

Outcomes

As part of the shell and core design work, we conducted a feasibility study to generate a building program, building stack plan, and conceptual site plan to right size the building footprint and public circulation.

The lower level of the space contains the ambulatory surgery center on one side and convenient care, orthopedics, phlebotomy, diagnostic imaging, and women’s care on the other side. The surgery center has four operating rooms, a procedure room, and 20 pre-op/post-op bays. Mobile MRI and CT trailers are parked alongside the building with a telescopic shelter designed to protect patients as they travel to and from the building. The upper level houses physical therapy, occupational therapy, one infusion room, two primary care suites, and three additional suites for future growth. Each level has a central lobby.

Bordering the Ohio River and close to the Shell Cracker Plant, the medical office building is in an area on the cusp of revitalization. The health center is equipped to offer a variety of services to the surrounding neighborhoods for years to come.
