The remodel of the former 50,000 sq. ft. Price Cutter building at Grand Avenue and Kansas Expressway in Springfield, Missouri, transformed a shuttered grocery store into an ambulatory surgery center and clinical health facility for the Jordan Valley Community Health Center (JVCHC). As Jordan Valley’s current locations were reaching capacity, they needed more space to provide their medical professionals with a comfortable atmosphere to provide enhanced access to patients and maintain quality care. With a growing number of their patients being women and children, adding additional space dedicated to these patients was a top priority.
“We are currently at capacity at our current locations, but with the addition of this building, it will give Jordan Valley the ability to expand our current comprehensive services.” — Brooks Miller, President, and CEO of Jordan Valley
The Jordan Valley Community Health Center’s Procedure Clinic was a two-phase project consisting of a 15,000 sq. ft. ambulatory surgery center and a 23,000 sq. ft. women’s and children’s clinic.
The first phase was a state licensed four-operatory ambulatory surgery center with sixteen preoperative and postoperative cubicles and four operatories which opened recently. The second phase included a women’s and children’s clinic with fifteen women’s exams, fifteen children’s exams, three ultrasound rooms, a procedure room, nonstress test rooms, four women’s dental treatment exams, five children’s dental exams, a separate Women’s, Infants and Children’s administrative area and support spaces. Construction on Phase II is expected to be completed in late fall.
The new facility will allow Jordan Valley the space and capacity to spread out and add additional services to benefit their patients and the community they serve.
