Connecting patients to nature through biophilic design

Our team assisted UPMC in transforming a one-story, 46,000 square foot windowless retail space into an airy, light-filled outpatient healthcare facility. In addition to abundant windows and skylights, we incorporated a new building façade, roof, and a large central waiting area. We also replaced and upgraded all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) building systems, including installing new mechanical units, water, fire, gas, and electrical services.

UPMC’s shared services healthcare model co-locates surgery, imaging, lab, primary care, women’s imaging, and specialty care exam-based practices within the rejuvenated space, providing a convenient one-stop-shop for their patients. Centralized registration streamlines and unifies the patient experience throughout, regardless of service line. Biophilic design elements, skylights, and artwork provide positive distractions to patients, reducing their stress during visits. The configuration of the exam suites allows each physician suite to expand and contract depending on the daily patient census.

With this new location, UPMC continues to deliver on their vision and promise of being a top healthcare provider.
