YorkTowne Medical Centre, a destination medical facility, was conceived by Ms. Marcie Shrom, MS Design Associates, to provide condominium space for private physician offices; and, an ambulatory surgery center to be owned by those practicing physicians. Ms. Shrom assembled a team of selected design professionals, construction manager, general contractor and prime sub-contractors to share their expertise in their various disciplines, with all participants working together in an integrated design/construction format, from the initial design concepts through the final completion of the “Core And Shell”. The Architect and Engineers served as the driving forces to create the design concept, while the Contractors performed their role as ‘Keepers of the Budget’. The interaction between the various parties served to produce an aesthetically pleasing facility that was well-built, within budget and delivered on time.

YorkTowne Medical Centre is a three-level facility, constructed in accordance with the requirements of the International Building Code, 2003 Edition. The exterior of the building on the main structure and the two porte cocheres makes extensive use of cultured stone and EFIS veneer applied over a cold-rolled steel stud framework; non-operable vinyl windows; pre-finished sheet metal trims; and, architectural-grade fiberglass shingles on a steep-pitched roof.

The Medical Office Building wing, consists of 31,593 square feet of enclosed, restricted parking containing forty-one spaces at the lowest level; and, 63,696 square feet of occupiable condominium space for private physician practices on two upper levels, one of which is at grade. This wing is constructed to Construction Type IIIB requirements; and, utilizes a structural steel skeleton with a concrete slab-on-grade in the parking level and open web steel bar joists with metal deck and a four-inch concrete slab for the elevated two floors. The steep pitched roof is constructed using pre-engineered wood trusses. Common area interior finishes are upscale, utilizing gypsum board ceilings in the common corridors, accented by periodic pilasters with wall sconces to provide dimension to the linear corridors. The common rest room facilities make extensive use of ceramic tile and spacious vanities. The Owner’s concern for sanitization in the medical environment is manifested in many ways throughout the facility, such as the use of automatic faucets and plumbing fixtures in the rest rooms. Additionally, a pleasing array of artwork and benches make guests’ visits to the YorkTowne Medical Centre a relaxing experience. 

Separated by a fire wall, the Ambulatory Surgery Building is also a three-level facility, containing 42,387 square feet, designed to house ancillary facilities, including an MRI Suite, a CT Scan Suite, two Radiology Suites, a Mammography Suite, two Ultrasound Suites, and the required support services; an ambulatory surgery center, with four operating rooms and the required support services; and, an upper level that is currently unoccupied. The Ambulatory Surgery Building is constructed to Construction Type IIA requirements, as required to address the mandates of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Division of Acute and Ambulatory Care. The basic construction materials are identical to the Medical Office Building wing, except the roof trusses are fabricated of cold-formed steel.
