The entrance invites the patients and their company into the first floor where an elegant, double-height hallway leads the way to the second floor by way of elevators/stairs. The majority of the services reside on this floor, beginning with the main reception. The design strategy divides up this floor into multiple pods; three are dedicated to examination, one for nuclear stress/imaging, and one for educational, research and operational purposes. Each pod has its own smaller reception, receiving patients and ensuring an efficient flow of foot-traffic. Within every pod, the doctors’ offices are situated in close proximity to three exam rooms, and the distance between the pods are calculated with allowance for staff short-cuts, minimizing wait-time and maximizing patient-care. Mezzanine floor is completely dedicated to staff. Generous in space, these areas offer a comfortable and quiet atmosphere for ONE Heart Care’s medical professionals.
