Lakes Regional
Master Plan

Lakes Regional Healthcare
Spirit Lake, IA
Completion date
May 2010

Eight concepts were developed and tested to determine the most effective solution for Lakes Regional Healthcare's short term needs and long term goals. 

All concepts were scored according to these eight priorities: functionality & adjacencies, ease of access, visibility, community image, defined entrances, public and private corridors, utilization, and construction phasing. The Master Plan is designed to be implemented over 10-20 years as funds are available. The phasing is established so that several years can pass between phases without a void in daily operations. In this way, positive changes will be made to the areas identified as being of critical importance while fully maintaining all other areas.
