Wellington Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Facility Opens To Rave Reviews

GBBN is proud to be associated with the great physicians practice at the Wellington Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine facility at their 5 Mile Road office in Cincinnati. Recently GBBN completed programming, medical planning and architecture services for the new 38,400 square foot medical office building.

As the flagship facility for this premier group practice, an overt statement of confidence and comfort is evoked in the prairie-styled medical office building. "Wellington's new Anderson Township office definitely exceeded our expectations," said Peter Iacobell, COO. "The building's exterior is unique and distinctive from a variety of perspectives."

The two-story lobby affords a comfortable, cheery venue for patients and families while they wait for appointments in rehabilitation or the doctor’s exam room. "The interior utilizes spaces in an optimal, efficient, patient-friendly manner," added Iacobell.

The space allows for eight orthopaedic physicians to practice simultaneously, supported by three digital radiographic imaging devices. A full-service physical rehab and sports medicine facility is integrated with and in support of the orthopaedic practice.

"In addition to expanding our presence and capacity within Cincinnati's growing Eastern corridor, the new office will allow us to strategically reengineer portions of our care delivery processes to enhance patient care and service," said Iacobell.

Patient convenience was a priority throughout the entire design process. The entrance on the North side serves a tenant who operates an MRI service. This entry allows arrivals via ambulance without creating congestion in the main lobby. "This design will act as a prototype for other Wellington offices," said Iacobell. He added, "I believe our inclusive approach to designing and building the facility played a key role in the outcome. The entire design team can take credit for such an outstanding achievement."
