Construction is scheduled to begin on Memorial Hospital of Converse County’s new state of the art 22,500 square foot medical office building next month. The $6.8 million facility includes convenient parking, a single registration area, and a children’s play alcove reminiscent of an old western storefront. The new facility will house Memorial Hospital’s Walk-In Clinic. The Walk-In Clinic allows patients to receive services from a physician assistant without an appointment. The clinic has become exceedingly popular over the past two years, averaging twenty-five patient visits per day. While no appointment is necessary, wait times do vary based upon how many people are waiting. In conjunction with the new building project, the hospital is actively recruiting an additional physician assistant to help reduce wait times and provide staffing for extended evening and Saturday hours. According to Mick Kasher, Memorial Hospital’s Physician Group Practice Manager, the new Medical Office Building and Walk-In Clinic brings Douglas area healthcare into the 21st century. “We have integrated the best practices from across the country into the design of our new Medical Office Building,” said Kasher. “Patients can be dropped off at the door, enter a common registration area, and be greeted by a centralized receptionist who can access any of the doctor’s schedules,” Kasher continued. The new Medical Office Building also means easier patient scheduling by phone. “Now patients call their individual doctor and work with that doctor’s receptionist. Our new Intelligent Scheduling model will allow dedicated schedulers and triage nurses to schedule appointments with any doctor,” said Kasher. Construction of the new Medical Office Building is being managed by Erdman Healthcare Real Estate and is scheduled to open next winter.
