Clarinda Regional Health Center

When Clarinda Regional Health Center made the decision to replace their aging hospital they turned to Graham Construction as their Construction Manager because of their experience with Critical Access Hospital replacement facilities and their knowledge of the USDA financing process. They also valued Graham’s Medical Equipment Management services to assist them with identifying and procuring their medical equipment for the project. The new hospital is being built on a thirty acre site, near the south edge of the city, which is large enough to accommodate the new hospital as well as future medical development projects. The 71,100 square foot facility will house twenty one patient rooms, a complete Imaging Department including a CT scanner and space for a possible future MRI addition as well as a state of the art Surgery Department and Medical Office Building.

One of the goals of the hospital design was to create a healthy environment which will be achieved by placing healthy activities such as physical therapy and cardiac rehabilitation in a very visible location near the front entry. The hospital also stressed staff efficiency during the design phase. This was accomplished by a shared admitting area for the hospital and the adjoining Medical Office Building as well as combining the nurse’s station to serve both the patient floor and the Emergency Department. The design team also allowed for future growth of the hospital by providing planned expansion of Surgery, Imaging, Patient Rooms, and the Clinic.
