Since late 2012, VIA has worked extensively with Porter Medical Center (PMC) on over twenty projects of various sizes and complexity at the hospital, in satellite offices, and at Helen Porter Nursing Home. Our first project, a review and update of PMC’s life safety programs, provided us with an understanding of the facility as a whole, as well as some of the challenges presented by some of the buildings. Since then, we have developed a process to quickly evaluate and design capital projects, producing quick studies to evaluate ideas for improved use of existing spaces (various practices, pharmacy, gift shop, endoscopy unit, and more). We have also designed and managed larger renovations to the lab and emergency department, converted existing space into an urgent care facility, and are currently working on the reconfiguration of the Collins building. We are proud to support our community hospital.
