Master planning architects provide affordable master plan for small hospital
Davis Partnership and Align Healthcare provided master planning services for Kimball Health in 2010. The combined master healthcare planning team implemented a two-step, first-things-first approach to assist the hospital leadership in prioritizing needs and budgeting for proposed hospital improvements. The master plan determined that renovations to the existing hospital would cost almost as much as building a replacement facility, and that a new hospital was affordable with some community support and proper physician recruitment. The proposed plan provided for a twelve-bed inpatient hospital with a new outpatient service area that included clinics, radiology, surgery, and lab services. One strategic choice for this small facility was to position a central nurse station that would allow supervision of both the emergency department and the inpatient beds during low census hours of operation.
