First Settlement Physical Therapy
Transforming Healing Opportunities
Medical facilities are essential to the health of a community as well as medical innovation. Designing these structures requires balancing technical requirements with the needs of physicians and patients; when performed correctly, these designs enhance lives.
DDC Threecore was excited to collaborate with First Settlement Physical Therapy (FSPT) in the design-build of a state-of-the-art 33,000 sf medical facility situated on three acres adjacent to the Belpre Medical Campus of the Memorial Health System. Utilizing our preconstruction and design build services, we were able to bring healthcare back to a more personal level as patients are seeking faster access to quality specialty care.
As the practice had to vacate their current facility, our team had the challenge of working within an expedited timeline in order to get FSPT up and running in their new home as quickly as possible. The move provided the practice with an opportunity to address how they could implement a future-forward space. Better parking, easier access, and a diversification of specialty care were all considerations given to the new design. By applying an integrated approach, we were able to not only meet our aggressive deadline but finish ahead of schedule in just 8 months.
Today, the Belpre Medical Center is a multi-million dollar medical complex that is home to not only First Settlement Physical Therapy, but several other healthcare providers. The patient-focused facility features a flexible structural concept to support patient healing as well as the staff’s work environment. These providers bring same-day specialty care services to the Mid-Ohio Valley by employing orthopedic surgeons, spinal surgeons, mental health professionals, family practice physicians, x-ray technicians, and physical therapists.
