The new 16,000 s/f flagship facility for Pro Sports Orthopedics located at 20 Guest St. finished construction in February and is now open for patients. Located in the New Balance headquarters building the new comprehensive facility includes examination and procedure space, x-ray imaging, physical therapy and physician and administrative offices.
The new facility was designed to reflect Pro Sports Orthopedics' commitment to high quality patient care, timely and convenient service and a high level of communication. While focusing on these principals the owner, project manager, architect and builder collaborated in creating a cost effective, comfortable and highly attractive new space. The clarity of circulation for patients, medical and administrative staff has successfully maximized the quality of patient care and the efficiency of space utilization. The reception area was thoughtfully planned to create a warm and welcoming first impression, a feeling that continues throughout the design of the facility. The use of internal glass allows natural light to penetrate the public spaces and increase visibility for staff while maintaining patient privacy.
HDS Architecture provided architectural design services. Hans Strauch, LEEP AP, principal-in-charge said, "Our goal was to create an uplifting and exciting design that would provide visual interest while supporting Pro Sports Orthopedics' mission for compassionate patient care." Already patients and staff have responded favorably to the new space. Diane Menard, executive director of Pro Sports Orthopedics says, "We are thrilled with our new space. Our patients love the experience of comfort in a stress reducing environment that is calming and easy to navigate. Keeping the patient flow the priority our physicians and medical staff are able to deliver services more efficiently at a level consistent with our standard for high quality care.
