ST.PETERSBURG, FL (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Optimal Outcomes, LLC, which develops facility solutions for healthcare providers, recently completed a comprehensive cancer center located at 3402 Martin Luther King Boulevard in Tampa, FL, near St. Joseph’s Hospital. This new landmark medical building consolidates services from three locations to one state-of-the-art center. Beyond the enhanced operational efficiencies gained in a full-service facility, the advanced design enhances patient flow, integrates treatment modalities and accommodates the latest technology. As health systems adjust to accommodate for healthcare reform, facilities must maximize convenience and efficiency for patients and providers.
Trends in healthcare design today pivot on consolidation where fewer facilities deliver broader integrated services. This is particularly evident in full service cancer treatment centers. These trends cause leading facility planners to understand and embrace the impact reform and decreasing reimbursements have on practices and health systems (1). While facility design is important and clearly impacts patient outcomes, success long term for practitioners will be defined by providing the highest quality care at the lowest incremental cost.
“This is the third, and largest in a series of comprehensive cancer facilities we have developed in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area over the last five years,” said Andy Boggini, Principal of Optimal Outcomes. “Our design methodologies lead to improved parameters of care that increase patient satisfaction and advance practice efficiencies which will help providers maximize their delivery of care.”
With each cancer center Optimal Outcomes develops the goal is providing the entire continuum of cancer care in one facility, improving business economics and patient satisfaction. Optimal’s evidence-based approach emphasizes wellness, integration, efficiency and convenience. The recently completed Tampa cancer provides:
•Landmark location with excellent access, convenient parking and single point registration
•36,000 square feet including medical oncology, radiology, radiation oncology, hematological pathology, diagnostic laboratory and clinical research facilities; and
•An aesthetically pleasing and emotionally healing environment for patients with amenities designed for enhanced comfort, counseling, classes and family support.
“Nowhere does proper design have greater significance than in cancer care,” said Patrick Marston, founder of Optimal Outcomes. “Subtle aspects like improved aesthetics, better clinical layouts, soothing décor and sustainable design make a significant difference in treatment.”
