Housed within approximately 7,700 square feet of the existing Chevy Chase Medical Plaza are the new Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) and Gastrointestinal Laboratory (GI Lab). This OSHPD certified center includes a new waiting area, with private consultation, pre-operatory beds, nurse station, endoscope procedure rooms and recovery area.

Crucial to the entire process was to design a comfortable yet aesthetically pleasing surgery facility in a cost effective manner.

Patients enter through a luxurious waiting room. Walls are lined in iridescent brown wall-coverings, with modern golden furniture to relax in, and surrounded by an eclectic collection of photographs. Zodiac, a granite like solid surface is used on the countertops of the receptionists' area. These furnishing were chosen for their beauty, ability to resist ware, and for being economical. The designer's envisioned a space to calm patients' nerves before entering surgery.

The center offers several procedures, creating a need for specialized equipment and rooms to be designed. Collaborating with HELP International, a medical equipment consultant company, ensured proper equipment purchases, and maintained delivery coordination during construction. The facility is outfitted with the latest state-of-the-art equipment.

The GI Lab's Endoscope Procedure Rooms are located on the east side of the facility, with the surgery rooms are on the north side. With the practicing physicians input the ideal rooms were designed for the various procdures, creating spaces to perform quality care. All spaces were designed in anticipation for future procedures that will be offered at the Chevy Chase Ambulatory Surgery Center & GI Lab.

Joining these two areas is a large open plan space housing the pre-operatory beds, nurses station, and recovery area. Gold curtains allow for privacy between beds when required.

With the selection of calming finishes and considerate attention to facility requirements, a Ambulatory Surgery Center was designed that can be enjoyed by all.
