We’ll focus specifically on the outcomes and lessons learned while working together on the 85,500 square foot Vestal Extension Clinic for United Health Services (UHS) in New York’s Southern Tier.
Denver; Orlando, FL and Binghamton, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
NexCore Group announced today that Kim Prentice, its Managing Director of Development & Operations, will present at this year’s Healthcare Design Conference — the industry’s best-attended conference devoted to how the design of responsibly built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes and financial success of healthcare facilities now and into the future.
The conference will take place in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Conference Center Nov. 16-19.
Mr. Prentice and his colleague Greg Chianis, founding partner of Chianis + Anderson Architects, will lead the roundtable session "Big Box Integrated Outpatient Facilities - Planning, Programming, Implementation." The session will take place Nov. 17 from 9:20 to 10:20 a.m.
"Greg Chianis and I are excited to share what we’ve learned about designing and delivering off-campus, integrated outpatient centers," says Mr. Prentice. "We’ll focus specifically on the outcomes and lessons learned while working together on the 85,500 square foot Vestal Extension Clinic for United Health Services (UHS) in New York’s Southern Tier. We also look forward to eliciting some lively discussion from attendees in this roundtable format about their own challenges and successes with this type of project."
NexCore Group, a national healthcare real estate company headquartered in Denver, and Chianis + Anderson, an architectural and interior design firm headquartered in Binghamton, recently collaborated with UHS to develop a three-story, off-campus outpatient center along a growing retail corridor in the underserved market of Vestal, a suburb of Binghamton. The $30 million multispecialty facility is the first of its type for UHS and New York’s Southern Tier. The facility opened in September 2012 to immediate success, with all business service volumes exceeding projections six months after opening.
Messrs. Prentice and Chianis will discuss how their firms achieved speed to market for UHS, employed best practices related to operational efficiencies, physician practice patterns and patient flow, and set a new system standard for branding.
