Llano Associates of Clovis, New Mexico engaged Granger Group for the development of this 37,400 square foot traditional medical facility. The project was occupied by the Surgery Center of Eastern New Mexico and Eastern New Mexico Physicians & Surgeons in July 2006.
Previous attempts by the clients to obtain financing were unsuccessful. Granger Group created a cost effective solution for the surgeons. In addition, Granger Group secured a fixed rate long-term non-recourse loan, bringing in debt financing and equity, and making the project feasible. Fully transitioned from concept to reality, this long-held dream of the surgeons employs state-of-the-art technology with an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) a medical office building, and an Imaging and Diagnostic Testing Center all under one roof. Surgeries performed include eye, orthopedic, gynecological, podiatric, breast and general surgeries.
The ASC portion consists of 13,100 square feet and includes: (3) operating rooms (1 fully equipped), men’s and women’s locker rooms, (2) minor procedure rooms, (6) preoperative and (6) postoperative cubicles for patient preparation and recovery, (3) 24-hour recovery rooms with individual restrooms, and (2) nurses’ stations. The MOB portion consists of 8,800 square feet, and includes (8) doctors’ offices, (3) general use exam pods that each contain (6) exam lanes, (1) dedicated ophthalmic exam lane pod, associated nurses’ stations, a minor procedure area, casting room, and doctors’ dictation areas. The Imaging and Diagnostic Testing Center consists of 3,500 square feet and includes (2) blood draw lanes, a blood draw exam room, (2) patient restrooms, a dedicated histology and cytology area for tissue analysis, a full-size x-ray room with associated darkroom and image viewing area, and an ultrasound room with (2) dedicated changing alcoves and a separate waiting area. The facility shares centralized waiting, billing, and staff areas, as well as medical records storage. Floor plan configurations are oriented around a large, central court-yard area, which provides natural lighting deeper into the facility’s central offices.
With the only freestanding surgery center within 100 miles of Clovis, New Mexico, the surgeons are now well on their way to achieving their secondary goal: attracting and retaining physicians to the Clovis area.
