Springfield Clinic

New Laboratory Clinic

The new freestanding metal building houses a 20,000-gsf clinical laboratory and 6,570-sf drive through service operation.

The lab spaces includes histology/pathology; micro/molecular; core lab (chem/hem/coag/urin/serology); and specimen drop off and processing. In total, the lab and lab support space total 11,700 nsf.  

The previous lab was overcrowded, and the new facility creates a more efficient lab with fewer employees by incorporating automation equipment and a more streamlined layout.

The open labs incorporate mobile and moveable casework to create flexible spaces that allow for future changes to the clinic. Designated “flex” space accommodates fast expansion to continued growth and innovation in the future.

The new location also allows the clinic to expand its unique drive-up function, allowing patients to receive traditional lab services without leaving their vehicle. This function is a significant driver of the overall site design to ensure the four-lane drive through is visible and promotes efficient traffic flow.
