Orthopaedic Associates (OA) and Emerald Coast Eye Institute wished to upgrade its main Fort Walton Beach offices. The physicians also wished to expand services and develop a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center (ASC), on the campus of the 247 bed Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. The group selected BBL to plan, design, develop and build its new MOB, Orthopaedic Center, Eye Clinic and ASC.
BBL designed a contemporary facility that is focused on customer convenience, satisfaction and efficiency. A large canopy easily permits patients to be dropped off and picked up under cover. An attractive lobby and spacious reception/waiting area warmly greets patients at OA’s 1st floor practice location and the 2nd floor Eye Center. Physical Therapy for the OA group is also housed on the 2nd floor.
OA’s 3-OR’s and ASC are located on the 3rd floor. The ASC is designed to save steps with patients escorted and flowing in an efficient circular pattern. Incoming surgery patients do not cross paths with discharged patients. OA administration, IT and a conference room are also located on the 3rd level.
