Denver-based NexCore Group commenced construction on a medical office building in Lexington, KY. The development is part of a continuing initiative to optimize efficiency of healthcare facilities nationwide for client Catholic Health Initiatives.
The one-story, 24,693-square-foot MOB will provide CHI Saint Joseph Health with an innovative, modern facility that will enable it to efficiently expand in the growing central Kentucky healthcare market when completed in February 2020. The provider has outgrown its current space.
The clinic will incorporate an on-stage, off-stage clinic model, meaning that it has been designed to separate waiting rooms and exam rooms for patients and family members from the “behind the scenes” areas used by physicians and staff. Compared with a traditional linear clinic design characterized by shared corridors and publicly-exposed workstations, this innovative approach is expected to contribute to shorter patient wait times, improved staff workflows, more collaboration opportunities for the care team in private areas, and reduced travel distances to exam rooms.
