Award Description: This project involves the renovation of an existing building owned by Centerville Clinics and the relocation of our Washington Family Doctors site to this building. The needs to be addressed by this project are insufficient space, inefficient design for patient flow, and accommodation for enhance or new services. Improvements in these areas will improve our efficiency, effectiveness, quality of care and patient outcomes. This project will improve upon the current situation as follows: Insufficient space for existing operations and accommodation for enhanced or new services: We are currently leasing 7,000 sq ft as a primary care medical office. The current space is small and inadequate for our current physicians and limits us in adding new physicians to increase access or primary medical care to the low income and uninsured patients in the community. This renovation project will increase the square footage of the office to 13,000 square feet. The number of physicians will increase from 6 to 8 primary care physicians. We project that there is a need for an additional 2 primary care physicians to provide services to the community. The additional physicians will improve access to medical care, quality of care and patient outcomes. A dental clinic and additional behavioral health services will be added to complement the existing primary care services. Increased access to both of these services is needed by the underserved population we serve. These additional services will also improve, quality of care and patient outcomes. Inefficient Design for patient flow: Effectiveness and efficiency will be increased by the complete access redesign, and related patient flow improvements, of the office space. Our plans are for a complete renovation of the existing space and a new office access design using the medical pod concept, This will also improve patient flow and quality of care. This site encompasses approximately 1.7 acres and several buildings. The new location is approximately ½ mile from the current location and is located in the same Medically Underserved area. The CIP proposal will allow us to create 20 new jobs and assist us in retaining our current staff. This enables us to enhance and expand our services to an underserved population as well as help those persons most impacted by the economic recession
