Breast Care Center at South Bend Clinic

Located in South Bend, IN

Back to projects

South Bend Clinic’s satellite practice on Day Road was looking to renovate its medical imaging services. The ultrasound room was oversized for its needs, and the X-ray machine, which would break down periodically, needed to be replaced. The project needed to be fast-tracked to ensure services to patients were not interrupted.The ultrasound room, located in an existing concrete vault, was converted into the new X-ray room. Extra utilities were needed, requiring drilling through the thick concrete shell. A technicians’ booth and control station were added. An adjacent break room was remodeled into the ultrasound room with an en suite restroom; utilizing the existing plumbing for a patient restroom.New dimmable lighting was added to both rooms, as well as LVT (luxury vinyl tile) flooring that is not only easy to clean, but its natural wood-grain look gives the rooms a more comfortable, hospitality style feel. Fresh paint was given to both rooms, and Corian solid-surface countertops were installed for easy cleaning. Casework for storage and supplies was salvaged and reused from other construction phases in the clinic.The renovation project was designed and constructed within two months, using phases to ensure a continuation of patient services. Both the ultrasound and X-ray rooms offer patients a comfortable experience with dimmable lights, private bathrooms and wood-grain floors. And with the space previously occupied by the X-ray equipment, the clinic will be able to continue expanding their services to the Breast Care Center.
