Outpatient Clinic

St. Joseph’s Health | Camillus, NY

Dwyer was tasked with designing a multi-disciplinary outpatient clinic
in the shell of a previous big-box store for St. Joseph’s Health system in
Camillus, New York. The 16,340 square foot clinic includes 18 general
purpose exam rooms that could be used by varying healthcare
specialties, 2 procedure rooms, and a dedicated cardiac services clinic.
The cardiac clinic is comprised of 4 exam rooms, a stress testing lab, an
echocardiogram imaging room, and a nuclear medicine imaging camera.
A small patient sub-waiting area was placed adjacent to the nuclear
medicine camera to provide a comfortable place for patients to wait during
their multi-step, and lengthy, cardiac nuclear imaging studies.

 

The goal ofthe design was to create identical exam room pods, utilizing an
on-stage/off-stage model, that could be used by multiple provider
specialties (primary care, obstetrics/gynecology, urology, endocrinology).
The on-stage/off-stage design model distinctly separates the patient
circulation, the on-stage areas, from the “behind the scenes” staff-only
spaces, the off-stage areas. Centralizing off-stage areas enhances
efficiency by placing providers closer to their patients. This cuts down on
travel distance, and time, between exam rooms and allows providers to have
more facetime with their patients thus creating a better overall experience.
