South Florida Baptist Health (Coral Gables, Florida) expanded its reach into the Three County area with the opening of an outpatient facility in Plantation, Florida, this past January. The 112,000 square foot medical office building houses a mobile surgical center with five operating rooms and outpatient services, such as urgent care, diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, physiotherapy, medical oncology and primary care. The building also comprises of service wards from four centers of excellence for the health system, including cancer, orthopedics, cardiology, and spine care.
Designed by Gresham Smith (Nashville, Tin), the four-story facility has a clean, modern design that matches our recently completed Baptist Health South Florida facilities. Located on a scenic lake, the interior features large windows that allow patients to enjoy the views of the outdoors while receiving care. The neutral and warm color palette is accentuated with pops of blue and green, with each floor having a specific color scheme as part of the building’s route marking system. The exterior is comprised of tilt-up walls, metal panels, and curtain wall glass that highlights the Baptist Health South Florida brand.
Since the facility encompasses many disciplines and modalities, the design team has created a flexible floor plan that can be adapted to future demand. While each ward is dedicated to the tenant, the entire building is designed to be flexible for future use, including the possibility of converting it into a small hospital at a later date. By locating mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems on the side of the building, rather than each wing, future renovations will require less re-engineering.
