In a continuing initiative to optimize the efficiency of healthcare facilities nationwide for client Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), NexCore Group developed two medical office buildings near Lexington, KY, in 2020. This one-story, 24,693 SF medical office building opened in April 2020 in Winchester, KY, and will provide an innovative, modern facility that will enable it to efficiently expand in the growing central Kentucky healthcare market.
To create the ultimate result for CHI’s nationwide initiative, NexCore developed a prototype comprised of scalable buildings ranging in size from 20,000 to 60,000 square feet on an adaptable, structural steel frame. The agile layouts were designed to allow new projects to move quickly through the design process. NexCore’s prototypes have been or are being deployed in several other projects in Iowa, Nebraska, and other U.S. markets. The optimized facility fosters productivity increases of an estimated 22-28% among providers, allowing them to see more patients more efficiently.
