New construction project to expand clinical space at One Hundred OaksJun. 23, 2023, 1:51 PM
This time next year, One Hundred Oaks will have 61,000-square-feet of additional clinical space thanks to a renovation project that kicks off July 5. The repurposed area on the third floor will be the new home for a Pediatric Primary Care Clinic and a second location for the high-demand Otolaryngology Clinic.
This work will take place on the North side of the building near Entrance E (the Guitar Center side). The renovation will also include vertically extending the elevators and stairs at Entrance E to conveniently reach the new clinical area.
This is latest example of how Vanderbilt Health is re-imagining ways to deliver patient care. Swapping unused cubicles with patient exam rooms was also suggested by several who participated in the Discover, Learn and Share Sessions launched at the February Leadership Assembly.
The entire project is expected to take about one year to complete. The renovation was designed to keep patient and visitor accessibility as convenient as possible. During the next three months, look for these changes:
- A temporary, covered walkway outside of Entrance E will protect patients and visitors from overhead construction.
- A temporary door will be placed at Entrance E, leading patients and visitors directly to the escalator which will remain in use.
- The entry doors at Entrance E will be closed.
- The stairwell and elevators at Entrance E will be closed for the duration of the project. Patients and visitors may choose to access elevators at the D Entrance.
- To keep the drive aisles as clear as possible, a trash chute leading to dumpsters will be positioned behind the North portion of the building.
No staff, patient or visitor parking spaces will be impacted at this time.
