Hoefer Wysocki Is Awarded Hegg Memorial Hospital Project

Hegg Memorial Hospital in Rock Valley, Iowa has hired Hoefer Wysocki Architecture to evaluate their existing facility and make recommendations for construction and/or renovation projects that would result in the long-term viability of the facility in providing healthcare services for northwest Iowa. The existing facility has a number of physical limitations that are not conducive to patient privacy. Also, the lack of flexibility in the original design of the hospital and the change in healthcare delivery methods has increasingly become an obstacle to staff efficiencies and patient centered care. The design options being proposed will lead to increased staffing efficiencies, optimized reimbursement and patient centered care. The expansion of each department was considered within the constraints of the existing site, keeping the adjacency to the existing long term care facilities for a full campus of healthcare services.

Hoefer Wysocki is Awarded Lackland Reid Clinic Project

The JE Dunn + Hoefer Wysocki Integrated Design-Build team was awarded the new 80,000 SF Lackland Reid Clinic located at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.  This new clinic will reflect the mission of the 59th MDW, which is to optimize readiness and patient-centered care through collaborative health delivery, education, training, and research.

The vision of the Reid Clinic is based on Evidence-Based Design (EBD) principles.  EBD uses the scientific method – presents a hypothesis, tests it in various ways, reports the results – to rigorously study the ways in which individual elements of the built environment affect patients, the facility staff, and resource utilization in healthcare delivery. The clinic will enhance the delivery of care for patients while supporting staff efficiency in a physical environment that promotes quality healthcare. The vision for this clinic design and construction is to:

  • Create a Patient Centered Environment
  • Improve the Quality and Safety of Healthcare
  • Create a positive work environment
  • Design for Maximum Standardization, future flexibility and growth
  • Design to incorporate “green” environmentally friendly aspects and to minimize the energy consumption footprint
  • Design with concern for life-cycle costs
