  • Radiology department
  • Urgent care with laboratory space
  • Cardiac rehabilitation center, with a therapy pool and walking track
  • Pain management center

  • Sleep labs
  • Orthopedic surgery consultation suite for pre/post surgery consultations, casting, X-rays, and hand therapy

The facility is a tenant space, and Karpinski worked closely with the core/shell engineers so that utilities were adequate for loads needed. The building systems included direct-expansion cooling and electric re-heat at terminal boxes, limited oxygen and medical vacuum, and limited nurse call. Total construction cost was $6.5 million.
