Ribbon-cutting Set For New Office Building At Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital

Monday, May 9, 2022

A ribboncutting is set Tuesday at 11 a.m. for a new medical office building at Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital.

 

Officials said, "Over the past five years, several local officials including Stephanie Boynton, CEO of Erlanger Bledsoe Hospital, and Bledsoe County Mayor Gregg Ridley have worked on their vision for what this medical office building would look like and its impact on the community at large. Architect Vance Travis and the MBI design team worked with Erlanger and Bledsoe officials for many months to program, plan, and design a new state of the art medical office building adjacent the hospital in Pikeville."

 

The new facility includes 14 exam rooms, two procedure areas, a lab, nurse station and physician offices. The new waiting room is significantly larger than the existing with a seating capacity of 42 people along with a designated wait area for mothers with pediatric patients.

The building is adjacent to the hospital entrance with direct ADA access for any supplemental services that may be needed. Mechanical and electrical systems designed by Campbell and Associates provide a much cleaner and energy efficient environment for patients and staff.

 

The exterior design presents a more residential character as opposed to an institutional environment in order to make patients and family members feel more at ease. With a sloping roof, stone base, and siding the building is designed to be in context with the surrounding community that is predominately residential, it was stated.
