Ambulatory Surgery Center

Hutchinson Ambulatory Surgery Center

Challenge

Array was retained to provide planning and design services for a new 12-story Ambulatory Surgical Center on a site that received prior zoning approval for a hotel. To avoid obtaining a variance, which would result in significant cost and delays, the footprint and setbacks could not be altered.

Solution

We developed a unique design solution incorporating dedicated elevators for staff and materials within the operating suite and support areas. Although the 12 ORs and four procedure rooms (sized to become additional ORs if needed) are split between three floors, simulation modeling showed that the dedicated elevators facilitated patient flow and reduced room turnaround time.

Result

A state-of-the-art 278,000 SF Ambulatory Surgery Center was created that met the client’s needs and increased efficiency without incurring additional construction costs.
