St. Luke's Regional Medical Center approached RMMB Architects with a desire to create a unique, yet connected, facility on their Sioux City campus. St. Luke's had a vision for a "one stop shop" of medical services, which was also welcoming and caring for their patients. RMMB Architects developed that vision into a truly state of the art medical facility which brings St. Luke's into the 21st century and will serve their clientele for many years to come.

"We have designed several medical clinics for St. Lukes and were pleased to be given the opportunity to design Physician Center Two," said Brian Crichton, project architect with RMMB in Sioux City. "Many people have responded positively on the building's exterior design and material selection. The masonry materials and smaller window openings create a more intimate feel along with a reduced scale."

W.A. Klinger, L.L.C., served as the general contractor for the project. This construction project was a true "team effort" that included the hospital staff, RMMB Architects, HDR Architecture, W.A. Klinger, and many subcontractors and suppliers. With the aggressive schedule that was established at the onset, all parties involved worked closely together to create a facility that not only meets the needs of the hospital, but also positions the hospital for future growth and technological improvement.

"We're proud to have worked on this major building project for St. Luke's. It has produced an excellent, high quality healthcare facility for the Siouxland community," said John Gleeson, president of Klinger. "To finish it under budget and on schedule is something we as contractors take a great deal of pride in."

This facility was designed to serve the Outpatient population of St. Luke's and the surrounding communities. The Ambulatory Surgery Center on the first floor, designed by HDR Architecture, represents this goal. With the growing need for "Same-Day" surgeries, the Ambulatory Surgery Center has five Operating Rooms, necessary recovery areas, and twenty-one private patient rooms. All of these areas are equipped with advanced medical technology to allow the medical staff to provide the very best in patient care.

The upper floors of this facility also contribute to the Outpatient mission. A fully equipped Diagnostic Imaging Center is located on the second floor. This center includes three Mammography suites, Radiographic X-Ray and CT Imaging equipment. The remainder of the second floor, as well as the third and fourth floors, house several medical clinics that provide services for the local community. This lease space provides the local providers the opportunity to have a medical practice in very close proximity to the Ambulatory Surgery Center, Diagnostic Imaging Center, and a large regional Medical Center.

The public areas on the upper floors coordinate with the colors and designs of the Ambulatory Surgery Center giving the building a unified look. RMMB's interior designer chose warm and soothing colors for public areas and created custom looks for the medical clinic spaces. Design features and materials were used to convey a sense of comfort among patients.

An adjoining Parking Garage provides the necessary parking for this new facility as well as an adjacent medical office facility. This parking structure, designed by HDR Architecture, is constructed of precast concrete "Double T" horizontal members as well as the vertical structure elements. The design elements of this structure also tie together with the new Physician Center Two. The aluminum window framing and metal skins at the corners match similar design elements on the adjacent facility. The parking garage is connected to Physician Center Two on the second level by a skywalk link. This gives the patients a completely weather controlled environment from their vehicle to the door of their chosen provider or the Ambulatory Surgery Center.

These two facilities have greatly contributed to the medical services that St. Lukes Regional Medical Center can provide its patients. This project has established St. Luke's as the regional surgery provider.
