Schneck Opens New Medical Office Building
May 31, 2019
Schneck Medical Center announced the opening of the Schneck Professional Building. Incorporating new design features to improve and expand delivery of care, the Schneck Professional Building is a five-floor, 80,000-square-foot facility offering Infectious Disease specialists, Neurosurgery, Pain Center, Primary Care, Surgical Associates, Surgical Weight Loss, and a Vein Center.
“As our communities continue to grow, it is critical that Schneck also grows to serve the needs of our patients. The Schneck Professional Building is evidence of that commitment,” said Warren Forgey, President/CEO, Schneck Medical Center. “Our goal is to make healthcare streamlined and comprehensive – while at the same time easy to access.”
Neurosurgery, Bariatrics, Surgical Associates, Pain Center, and the Vein Center will open on Level 5 on Monday, June 3. Later in the summer, Infectious Disease and a third Schneck Primary Care location will open on Level 4. Levels 1, 2, and 3 will be built out as needed for growth in providers. Once all levels are occupied, the building can accommodate 40 to 50 providers and contain 120 to 150 exam rooms.
The Schneck Professional Building was constructed as an energy-efficient facility with 100 percent LED lighting, a 4-pipe chilled beam system that reduces energy costs, and windows glazed to reflect the sun and reduce radiant heat.
In addition, the building utilized a Cobiax system in its structure. Cobiax “balls” are a light and environmentally sustainable system that replaces massive concrete inside the slabs and makes the building considerably lighter. The “balls” were placed between the steel reinforcements and the concrete was poured over top. The balls fill up space allowing the building to be lighter, economical and sustainable.
“Mary Schneck, who 108 years ago had the vision of building a community hospital, would be pleased to see how much we have grown-from a 17-bed hospital to a healthcare delivery system with nine affiliated locations in four counties and, one of the most respected health institutions in the nation,” added Forgey. “We are excited to share the opening of the new Schneck Professional Building with the community and to begin a new chapter in Schneck’s history.”
