Some health issues aren't apparent on an x-ray. They cannot be addressed simply with a prescription or a procedure. In those cases, patients are referred to specialists. Amidst the ensuing tests, scans, and lab work, it may be hard to find a diagnosis. It shouldn't be hard to find the best physicians for the task.
Working with Shands, Flad designed the new specialty care center to house many of the hospital's dedicated practices in a single facility. The four-story clinic features offices for neurology, cardiology, psychiatry, and dermatology, in addition to an infertility clinic, in-vitro fertilization lab, and a women's diagnostic suite. This not only consolidates practices, allowing patients to see multiple specialists easily, it also ensures better continuity of care.
Likewise, Flad's 40-acre master plan for the new campus capitalizes on the natural park-like setting, incorporating walking trails, shade trees, and a dedicated multi-use path to encourage staff, visitors, and patients to engage with the outdoors.
