WellSpan Health Thomas Hart Medical Office Building

York, PA

Seamlessly transforming retail space into a medical office

WellSpan Health, an integrated health system that serves the communities of central PA and northern MD, called on Warehaus to design the rehabilitation of 23,000 sf of existing retail space into a medical office family practice, and dental clinic. The project was under a swift schedule to make room for a large multi-floor surgical tower on the York Hospital Campus, requiring the relocation of the two medical practices.

The design included confirmation of the existing health system standards for exam rooms, procedure rooms, dental operatories, and dental procedure rooms. These standards were generated in live scale in a warehouse space owned by WellSpan Health, which enabled the team to confirm each room standard and prototype before the project even moved out of the concept design phase. The prototypes included true size and locations of all the medical equipment required for the rooms, and supported the swift timeline of the construction documents, reducing the need for revisions later in the process.

The Warehaus team continued the same approach not only for clinical spaces but for surrounding support rooms and staff workspaces, ensuring that all staff and support areas were designed for plug-and-play equipment and furniture. They also integrated all WellSpan Health finish standards into the project and found ways to elevate them to current industry standards. This enabled WellSpan Health to upgrade its internal standards company-wide. Custom lighting design was provided for the main lobby and reception area and provided flexibility for COVID-required barriers and sanitation protocols.

Challenges of the project included the discovery of a covered manhole that led to an active stormwater line in the middle of the proposed breakroom within the building footprint. Warehaus’ civil engineering team immediately researched the source and direction of the storm line to determine the township’s accessibility requirements. The architectural and structural teams then responded with a revised design that allowed required access to the manhole but maintained 100% of the client’s required program.
