Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin - Delafield

Warm and inviting healthcare design

Positioned alongside Interstate 94 for maximum visibility and access, Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin, the largest independent provider of orthopaedic specialty medicine in Wisconsin, combines two autonomous operations into a single location for maximum patient and staff efficiency.

Designed to accommodate future flexibility in patient types and volumes, the facility includes an orthopaedic clinic, physical therapy center, upgraded diagnostic imaging capabilities, and ambulatory surgery center to utilize shared areas and amenities for adjacencies.

With an intent to create a community destination for health and wellness and increase patient referral numbers, the patient experience was improved by offering a variety of personalized spaces. Quiet zones, open seating, hospitality lounges, clear wayfinding, and abundant daylighting contribute to the serene, welcoming environment. To support workflow and allow increased caregiver access to patients, staff efficiency is optimized through clustering private exam pods around a central workstation, with centrally-placed exam tables to allow access from all sides and support varying patient acuity. Moving away from private offices at the previous locations, physicians utilize pod-style work zones with a dedicated physician retreat featuring high-end finishes.
