St. John’s Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy Building

The Sports Medicine Addition/Renovation consisted of 5 phases so staff and patients could continue to use the facility while un-der construction. It took approximately 14 months for the con-struction of this project, meaning we were able to complete con-struction ahead of the original schedule by 6 weeks. We de-signed the Sports Medicine space with an administrator who left after the drawings were completed and construction had begun. This proved to be a challenge because the new contact person had a different Healthcare Service Concept; therefore, there were many changes requested by the new administrator, but we were able to incorporate them all. There were Physical Therapy, Sports Therapy and Occupational Therapy areas in this project. St. John’s partnered with the Springfield Cardinals minor league baseball team and this project was a part of the “sell”.

Challenge:

New administration in the middle of construction who had a different Healthcare Service Concept.

Solution:

Able to incorporate new Healthcare Service Concept in to the project, during construction.
