Whether you’re starting a medical practice or relocating an existing one, finding the right location can be challenging, but following appropriate steps to determine the best facility in which to establish your practice can help you streamline the entire process. These are the three fundamental steps: establishing a decision-making framework within your practice, determining what you want in a new worksite, and then considering the potential services and amenities the facility has to offer.
There are several specific factors you should consider besides the geographic location. These are what we are going to delve into in this article. Read on.
The Type of Facility
Preferably, you want to locate your practice in a professional medical building, rather than in an alternative site, such as a strip mall. Also, take into consideration whether the facility has sufficient free parking and ADA-equipped access.
The Size of the Office Space
You’ll need adequate space for operating your practice efficiently. Depending on your specialty and the size of your staff, the rule of thumb is 1,200 to 1,500 square feet for a single physician and 1,000 to 2,000 square feet for every additional person (up to four or five).
The Proximity to Other Medical Facilities
Convenience is one of the factors that makes patients gravitate to your practice. Thus, the closer your practice is to a local hospital, pharmacy, imaging services, and other healthcare practitioners, the better for you and your patients.
Other Medical Practices with Whom You Share Space
Ideally, you also want to set up your space among physician neighbors who are respected within the community.
The Need for Renovation
Get a space in move-in condition, or plan on taking six to nine months to overhaul.
