In an article published this week by GlobeSt.com, HSA PrimeCare president John Wilson explains how millennials are influencing the design of modern medical office buildings.
Millennials are focused on preventative care and overall wellness, and they are demanding convenience and integrated technology. According to Wilson, “more medical office buildings are including wellness and fitness centers… Cardiology groups especially have tied checkups and recommended workouts together, allowing patients to do both activities in a single visit. And to cut down on the number of trips patients make, many operators now realize they should house an array of specialists.”
Last year, HSA PrimeCare developed the 109,000-square-foot Drexel Town Square Health Center in Oak Creek, Wisc. In addition to offering a full-spectrum of services, the multi-specialty building has immediate access to walking paths at Emerald Preserve Park that patients and employees of the facility can enjoy.
Wilson further describes how check-in kiosks and telemedicine technology are being utilized in healthcare facilities to serve millennials.
“Such facilities allow instant consultations with specialists who may be located 30 miles away at the main hospital, eliminating the need for much extra travel,” said Wilson. “It’s an ever-changing field and moving fast…The adage we always use is, approach the brick-and-mortar as if you were a patient.”
