Cost-Effective Design

August 18, 2015

Big box stores provide a great opportunity as repurposed medical clinics, capitalizing on prominent site location, large footprint and ease of access for patients and staff.  These large parcels are ideally suited for outpatient centers supported by complementary retail such as durable medical equipment, dialysis centers and pharmacy.  A recent project for ProMedica repurposed an old building into a 65,000 sf rehabilitation center for $75/square foot.  Through design efficiencies, the new center has realized a 30% increase in patients from the previous program.
