Planning for this new orthopedic focused facility focused on expressing and reinforcing the Steindler Orthopedic Clinic patient care philosophy: improving the patient experience. The new facility allows for greater efficiencies by joining a clinic/medical office building and ambulatory surgical center (ASC).
The campus is situated on a 36 acre site in the fast-growing city of North Liberty between Iowa City and Cedar Rapids. The site's proximity to major thoroughfares increases visibility and access. Future growth is possible with ample space to expand and develop compatible uses. Co-locating an ambulatory surgical center with the orthopedic clinic allows physicians to improve patient care by providing a more flexible surgical schedule, reducing wait times for important life-improving procedures and reducing the costs and complications to patients and insurors. The ASC is able to function separately from the clinical spaces while still leveraging and sharing many back of house areas, which reduces redundant spaces and saves costs. The campus is planned to ease entry, reduce patient travel distances and maximize square footage.
