Medical group buildings getting renovated

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Significant renovations are underway at the 21st Medical Group. Upon completion, buildings 959 (main clinic), 725 (medical group annex) and 2012 (Area Dental Lab) will provide an enhanced experience for both patients and staff.

The redesign and rightsizing of various departments and public spaces will improve patient flow, functionality and create modernized facilities.

Phase 1 of the construction project is scheduled to be complete Dec. 22. Flight medicine, physical therapy, exceptional family member program, patient advocate, disease management and case management are scheduled to be open for business in their new and permanent spaces within building 959. Physical therapy will move from building 725 to its previous, but newly renovated location in building 959, and will have twice as much patient care space. Flight medicine has a short move, from its current location, to just across the patient waiting area. Its newly designed and renovated clinical space is the area previously occupied by patient administration and records, located adjacent to women's health. The EFMP, patient advocate, disease management and case management will be permanently located to new offices next to physical therapy.

Phase 2 of the project is scheduled to begin Jan. 8, 2015. Immunizations, laboratory, optometry and radiology departments will relocate to temporary spaces during this phase. Immunizations will remain in building 959, but will be relocated near the physical therapy clinic. Laboratory specimen collection will move within the new flight medicine clinic with patient check-in at the flight medicine front desk. Radiology will relocate ultrasound and mammography to building 725 while routine X-ray will remain in its current building 959 location. Finally, optometry moves to the modular facility adjacent to building 725. All phase 2 relocations are expected to last until April 2015 with external and internal signage directing patients to their destinations.

The last phase of the project has an estimated start date of late spring 2015 and includes the final remodel of building 725 and upon completion, the transfer of patient administration and records from the modular facility into permanent locations within this building. In addition, minor exterior upgrades will enhance the entrances to buildings 959 and 725.

Building 2012 renovation began in September and will not impact patients receiving care at the Peterson Dental Clinic, but ongoing construction will soon be noticeable while walking to the dental clinic as construction increases.
Estimated completion of all project phases is September 2015, and the 21st Medical Group looks forward to serving all beneficiaries in its newly renovated facilities. For information about the construction project, contact Lt. Col. Mark Reynolds, 21st Medical Support Squadron commander, at 556-5588.
