Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital has a special division called WorkFORCE, which offers occupational health services to both the community and commercial businesses. This division has quickly expanded in a space that was not intended for healthcare, and so they began to envision a new space to better serve and accommodate the growing field, while also incorporating an Urgent Care center. JLG has been working with the Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital to accommodate their identified needs into the design, focusing heavily on creating a patient-centered, high-efficiency facility. The plan calls for two lobby spaces for Urgent Care and Occupational Health in order to separate those that will have routine exams from those that may be ill. These separate lobbies will be anchored by a joint reception space for easy entrance. In order to maximize provider time with patients, rather than traveling to see the patient, staff utilization and provider collaboration will be improved through an on-stage off-stage layout with a provider core servicing both the Occupational Health exam rooms and the Urgent Care exam rooms, allowing staff to flow proficiently between patient rooms. Spaces also include DOT testing, lab and phlebotomy, a radiology suite and physical therapy.
