16 Oct Spacious 8-Chair Pediatric Office
In this large 4,072-square-foot pediatrics office, the designer planned efficiently for a high-traffic practice. The spacious waiting area has several seating pods for patients and guests to wait comfortably, ideally suited for families coming for treatment. Additionally, the design avoids bottlenecking with a separate entry and exit for patients, providing proper circulation and flow throughout the practice.
Entry and Exit Flow
This large and spacious waiting room is sectioned into a few zones with varied seating groups. There is a kids’ area with low seating and a partial-height wall to section off from the rest of waiting. Behind the reception desk leads to a private runway including the business manager’s office, storage, and IT. Around the corner on the separate patient exit are two semi-private check-out stations. Separating these spaces keeps the office running efficiently without bottlenecking. Across from the checkout stations is a bench and prize wall for kids while their parents are checking out.
This front area also holds a consultation room and an insurance office.
This practice contains four hygiene rooms separated by semiprivate dividers on one wing and four standard treatment rooms with sliding door entry on the other side. Each room contains guest seating. Central to treatment is the bulk of the clinical support. This practice contains two imaging alcoves with bench seating across the hallway. The dual-entry sterilization center is designed so staff can access from either side of treatment. This central hall also contains a stand-up consult and cart storage. Nearby, the post-treatment room is positioned for patient recovery with staff monitoring. This room also allows for quicker turnover of the treatment room. Finally, a sizable section is dedicated to practice storage with access from both runs of treatment.
The last portion of the practice is dedicated to the team. Beginning down the private hall leads to a shared private office with two workstations and a table suitable for discussions with staff members. Further down the hall brings us to the staff lounge with a dining room style table, high-top counter, and kitchen. Just outside the hall there are lockers for staff’s personal belongings, a private restroom, and additional storage solutions.
