Wakemed Medical Park of Cary MOB Ambulatory Surgery CenterCary, NC The master planning and design for this medical office building/ambulatory surgical center focused on creating beautiful, welcoming, cost-conscious facilities for patients and staff. The lean, efficient model for the developer-driven project fit within a tight footprint; Phase 1 is a five-story, 133,900 GSF facility and 470-space parking deck as part of the overall masterplan for the site. LS3P designed the MOB core and shell for Healthcare Trust of America as a CM@Risk project, and completed the CON for the fifth-floor ASC. LS3P also provide tenant upfits for Wake Med, including the 15,000 SF four OR ambulatory surgery center, clinical spaces for cardiology, imaging, pharmacy, general surgery, vascular, thoracic, urology, urogynecology, OB/GYN, and maternal fetal medicine. The efficiency of the design represents the need for the high throughput required for the business model. The interior design strategy worked within the client’s systemwide standards but created an aesthetic that speaks to the high quality of care being provided while feeling comfortable and welcoming. The project required significant expertise with code compliance and very strict exterior design standards in the Town of Cary. LS3P has earned a reputation for being “regulatory wizards” who are adept at creating innovative, collaborative design solutions to regulatory challenges.
