The Missouri Orthopaedic Institute expansion project is a 85,000-square-foot addition to the existing orthopaedic facility. The addition houses new operating rooms, a lobby, outpatient surgery space, clinic modules and inpatient beds.
Renovations throughout the building strengthen patient and staff flows. A lack of space and circulation problems prompted the need for the expansion and renovations. The new addition reverses the entry point of the building, giving direct access to the clinic for patients. The design team was challenged to correct some of the facility’s circulation issues without remodeling the entire structure. The exterior architecture complements the existing facility, but radically alters how the building is used and accessed by patients.
Key Features Include: five additional operating rooms, 22 additional private inpatient rooms, three additional digital X-ray rooms, 19 additional outpatient examination rooms, both finished and shelled space, a fourth floor dedicated to orthopaedic research, a larger restaurant for patients and visitors, and the addition of a coffee kiosk in the main entrance lobby.arger restaurant for patients and visitors, and an addition of a coffee kiosk in the main entrance lobby.
