Architectural design for design & construction of new 20,000 sq. ft. orthopaedic clinic space

Suncoast Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine

Venice, FL

Suncoast Orthopaedics engaged with WillisSmith Construction to design-build with PRA a brand new 20,000 sq. ft. building. The goal of the project was to combine the two existing facilities into one to elevate accommodations and add a physical therapy area. Suncoast was also implementing a rebrand which aided in the design process. The site for the project was vacant and located in an up-and-coming business development area in Venice, FL, and was a large factor in the placement of the building.

The design goal was to combine all organization services into one orthopaedic clinic. The clinic is laid out in easily identifiable pod clusters, each with three exam rooms arranged around a central staff workstation. This collaborative working model allows the care team to easily interact with their patients. Additionally, each pod features a centralized digital wall covering showcasing a color theme and local nature images, making wayfinding easier for patients. Accent colors are bright and vibrant, offset by an otherwise neutral palette and abundant natural daylight.

Provider pods are tied together by a centralized X-ray and MRI suite, located to both minimize footsteps and ease patient wayfinding inside the clinic. Two procedure rooms and a physical therapy tenant provide complementary clinic services. This patient-centric design minimizes walking and maximizes efficiency.
