Modular medical office buildings can resolve many areas of concern in the healthcare industry when a medical or hospital facility is at capacity and needs more space.
Today’s innovative modular solutions are a cost-effective way to accommodate more patients and provide state-of-the-art treatment facilities in a fraction of the time it takes to construct a traditional brick and mortar building.
Customize standalone suites or install permanent additions to existing buildings. Add office space for administrative staff. Modernize a rehab or imaging center. Move expensive imaging equipment out of the basement and into a convenient facility with the proper technical requirements.
The possibilities are endless. Choose from a wide range of existing designs and floor plans or design a new facility from the ground up.
Modular medical buildings are an ideal turnkey solution for these purposes and more:
- Medical Office Buildings
- Acute Care Hospital Facilities
- Emergency Rooms
- Diagnostic Imaging Centers
- Dialysis Centers
- Outpatient Clinics
- Operating Rooms
- Research Centers
- Wellness Centers
- Skilled Nursing Facilities
- Assisted Living Centers
Adding extra space the conventional “stick-built” way can be a time-consuming and expensive project. Poor weather conditions wreak havoc on construction schedules, and noise, dust and debris on the building site can be very disruptive to patients and visitors. Modular structures can be used when temporary space is required, but can also be used for long-term or permanent space.
An excellent example of an advanced modular healthcare solution is the Park Nicollet Health Services imaging building which won the Modular Building Institute’s 2014 Award of Distinction. A four-module building adjacent to the main clinic was constructed and delivered in 78 days and included radio frequency and magnetic shielding to accommodate MRI equipment, as well as lead lined walls, doors and windows for a CT scanner. Temperature and humidity controls were installed. The facility was able to minimize cost and generate revenue more quickly through an earlier start-up.
Many modular builders, such as Modular Genius in Joppa, MO, have fabrication facilities throughout the country and can build your modules close to the building site to help you meet strict deadlines. When the modules leave the factory, they are about 90% complete and have been engineered so that stairwells, water lines, HVAC, electrical lines, and other systems are already in place. In half the time of traditional construction, modules can be transported to the building site, connected like building blocks, and be recouping your investment.
Modular buildings are also a cost-effective means of complying with the highest green building standards, including LEED® certification. Most new modular units are built with recycled steel, making them strong, fire-resistant and mold-resistant.
The manufacturing process uses less energy and water, and materials waste is controlled with stringent manufacturing controls. Energy-efficient utilities, eco-friendly insulation and no-VOC or low-VOC interior wall and floor treatments can be installed to reduce a building’s environmental impact.
Whether you need a multi-story patient care building, a standalone laboratory, or a complete mobile healthcare clinic, modular construction allows you to quickly improve revenue flow and provide patients with comfortable, modern, well-equipped facilities. Manage your construction budget without sacrificing quality by investigating the many options available today for modular medical office buildings.
