Patients First Facility
Patients First coordinates health care across the entire continuum to make it more cost-effective for patients and to improve patient health outcomes. Lawrence Group designed a new three-story medical office building addition as an expansion of the existing Patients First facility in Washington, Missouri. This new facility allows Patients First to better provide for their patients with a focus on education, technology and ease of patient access, which were critical to the planning of the project.
Lawrence Group provided master planning, exterior and interior architecture and interior design. The addition includes a cancer center, ambulatory surgery center with four operating rooms, urgent care (4,800 SF), radiology and additional clinic space. The 7,500-square foot radiology department includes two MRIs, CT, two x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and a nuclear camera, and additional clinic space. In 2012, Patients First merged with Mercy.
