Cohesively functioning campus improves efficiency and satisfaction
Rochelle Community Hospital sought to consolidate two rural clinics with differing operational layouts, cultures, and services. It was important that the new clinic operate as a cohesively functioning environment on the hospital’s main campus. In turn, Rochelle Community Hospital could strengthen its connection to the community, all while continuing to be a local leader in healthcare.
While complying with rural healthcare clinic regulations, ERDMAN planned and designed the project to streamline operations, update care models, and improve recruitment and staff satisfaction. Greater efficiency was achieved through an updated clinic layout, reallocation of staff, and a more consistent patient experience that aligns with the hospital’s brand. Today, the clinic promotes health and wellness with its expanded services of orthopedics, rehabilitation, primary care, fitness, and more.
Working with the group from ERDMAN was smooth and efficient from the initial concept planning to the ribbon cutting. The full range of services ERDMAN provides minimizes the number of contacts necessary through the entire length of the project. Knowing the status of the project was always front and center through the consistent Contractor/Owner meetings. We would welcome the opportunity to work with ERDMAN again on any future projects.
