Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Outpatient Surgery Center
Lebanon, NH | 2010
Sited at the entrance to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock campus, the Outpatient Surgery Center (OSC) is convenient and accessible for patients and efficient for medical staff. The Center allows Dartmouth-Hitchcock to separate inpatient and outpatient procedures, freeing up capacity in the main facility’s surgical suite while responding to a growing demand for ambulatory surgical services. The Center’s proximity to the main facility provides access to emergency medical care if required.
The one-story facility features eight operating rooms and a light-filled waiting area. A glass-canopied entry welcomes visitors on arrival from the OSC's dedicated parking area.
Thermographic modeling was used to create a building envelope tailored for the temperature extremes of northern New England. Designed and built with an emphasis on value, the Outpatient Surgery Center may be a model for other outpatient centers in cold-weather climates.
