Employee Health Renovation at U of R
The URMC Employee Health facility had outgrown its existing space on AC3. The clinical suite was operating well over capacity, with many rooms serving triple duty for patient care, storage, and office space. This created inefficiencies in patient visits due to multi-use rooms and marginal accessibility to equipment in these rooms. They also had decentralized work areas spread out over several hospital floors for non-clinical functions, which made for a very inefficient workflow for the administrative staff. The department had also made adjustments on the fly to deal with Covid screening of URMC staff but needed better facilities designed to maintain patient privacy and protect the department staff’s health.
Relocate the Employee Heath suite to increase the department’s capacity, improve patient privacy, streamline workflows, increase staff safety, and ultimately provide a patient care experience that aligns better with the URMC brand.
