ARRA: Capital Improvement Program: June Buchanan Satellite Site

Grants and Contracts Details


In order to transform our new satellite access point at June Buchanan Medical Clinic (JBMC) into a competitive health care facility we propose the following capital improvement projects: -Installation of a Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) Air-Cooled DX Multizone System at JBMC to replace the inefficient boiler system currently in place at JBMC. -Updating X-Ray equipment to digital technology, and -Purchase of updated exam room equipment, casing, and furniture. Collectively, these improvements will increase efficiency (for an estimated cost savings of $19,000 annually in heating and cooling costs at our 13,326 square foot facility), improve quality of care (digital radiography will enhance overall image display), and enhance patient outcomes (through reduction of diagnostic errors). The proposed facility enhancements will also improve patient satisfaction through replacement of outdated equipment in addition to optimizing workflow as a result of renovations in exam room equipment and casing. The renovation will add two new exam rooms (converted from a former audio room and medication room) to JBMC, resulting in increased encounter capacity and reduced patient wait time.
