Since late 2012, VIA has worked extensively with Porter Medical Center (PMC) on nearly thirty 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). Projects range in size and complexity from a large lab and emergency department renovation to the recently completed restoration of the 1925 Building’s historic entrance as one of PMC’s primary accessible entry points. Every PMC project requires careful balancing of patients’ and PMC staff needs, budget, and maintaining operations during construction. VIA is proud to support our community hospital.
