Project Summary

The Out-Patient Clinic serving Veterans at the North Chicago Federal Health Care Center was in need of modernization and repair. Bailey Edward is providing services to upgrade the existing finishes throughout the out-patient exam department, provide for patient privacy and create more usable exam rooms for the medical staff.
 
The podiatry department area will be converted to exam and office use for primary care. The design will create two exam rooms per doctor with one including the doctor’s desk and filing equipment. The reconfiguring of the exam room and exam/office room layouts will provide computer screen privacy and provide for the proper bedside approach to the exam table.

Bailey Edward will redesign the waiting area to accommodate changes to the reception, check-in and check-out sequences and the need for acoustical and visual privacy. Another ‘My Healthy Vet’ station will be integrated into the waiting area. All wall finishes and light fixtures in the waiting area will be updated and the glare and solar heat gain from the skylights will be minimized.
