Centra Southside MRI Suite
This new MRI suite for Centra Southside Community Hospital replaces the healthcare system’s mobile part-time unit and provides imaging capacity for the hospital’s patients in a more cost-effective facility. Located on a sloping site, the 2,000-sf space was squeezed in on the campus between the existing ER and Imaging Departments. Design and construction began before final equipment selection, requiring diligent coordination during the construction phase to up-fit for the final machine selection without significant changes to the original project schedule. Designed to be spacious and welcoming, the bright interior includes a lobby and reception area, dressing rooms, and restrooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood the space, creating a soothing environment for patients.
