Multispecialty - Multifunctional

The MWU Multispecialty Clinic is a 6-level, high-rise structure providing dental, optometry, and miscellaneous medical outpatient care services. The building is approximately 191,000 SF with an additional roof mounted mechanical penthouse of approximately 8,600 SF.

A majority of the building functions as a 294 chair dental clinic which includes procedure areas, an operatory suite, equipment sterilization area, wet labs, CAD/CAM rooms, teaching labs, offices, classrooms, conference rooms, and a reception area. One level of the building contains a 31,000 SF Multispecialty Clinic which includes speech therapy and physical therapy exam and treatment rooms, and a shell build-out space for future clinic functions.

Another level of the building will operate as an optometry clinic which will include multiple exam rooms, a laser surgery room, testing rooms, an eyewear center, classrooms, offices, and a waiting room. The M/P/E infrastructure has been provided, but the final build-out for this clinic will be done in a future project.
