Optimus has designed many medical office buildings and suites.  These projects include new buildings, interior and exterior renovations and interior tenant fit-ups of all sizes.  Optimus was retained by Mid-Hudson Medical Group to plan a major medical office expansion for their 2.5 acre site adjacent to Vassar Brothers Hospital.  A small one story medical office occupied the upper section of the site for more then 20 years.  The mostly wooded site extended down a steep hill between Columbia and Pine streets.  We maximized the site with a 42,000 sf occupied building on three levels of 14,500 sf each, with a 14,500 sf on-grade parking below.  Late in construction, the Owner requested that we develop the parking into occupied space for Urgent Care, PT and a full Lab, increasing the building to 58,000 sf.  Patients access the building on-grade in two locations, from Pine Street on the lowest level, and from Columbia Street on the third level.  A center hall connects each entrance and side of the building with elevators and stairs.  This project includes: Urgent Care, Blood Draw, Lab, PT, Imaging & Women’s Imaging, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Surgery, OBGYN and a Procedure Suite.  The City of Poughkeepsie was pleased to see this project develop.  The Planning Board was particularly pleased with how we incorporated the building into the site, in scale with residential buildings on Columbia Street, and with tasteful exterior colors compatible with the area.
