Owning a medical office or clinic is a lot of responsibility. Not only does it go hand in hand with intense jobs which require a lot of study and practice, but you become a lot of people’s lifeline. When your clinic is the first place your patients go to for medical help, the building where they receive care is a huge facet of their health and safety. Because of that, our team at Heidan Construction wants to impress upon you how renovating your clinic improves that health and safety. There are a lot of valuable ways you and your patients can benefit from a renovation investment. Let’s look at just a few of them.
Replace Dangerous Materials
So, one of the most important reasons you should be renovating your clinic is if it’s been around a while. If you bought the building from an older practice, took over an existing practice, or have been pouring blood, sweat, and tears into it for many decades, it might carry some less than stellar secrets in its walls. Namely, old buildings can contain things like asbestos. In a perfect world, every old building would be remodeled as soon as a building material is found to be dangerous. However, we don’t live in a perfect world.
When renovating your clinic, it’s important to test for things like asbestos in the older parts of the building. Removing the dangerous materials used to build a structure in the early or mid 20th century is a tricky task. Having a renovation team that can help arrange for the safe removal of health hazards is paramount.
Have you ever thought about how bacteria can be harbored by even the smallest crack or crevice? If you work in the healthcare field, you most certainly have. Now that you’re thinking of it, how many cracks, crevices, fractures, and so on have made themselves at home in your clinic? The answer is: probably more than desired. Even crackling paint can be a place for bacteria to hide.
Bacteria can lead to serious infections and illnesses. Therefore, a medical office necessarily needs to do its best to remove its footholds. Upgrading equipment, wall paint, flooring, counters, and anything else that contains bacteria-harboring gaps of any size is something every medical clinic should strive for. Renovating your clinic to be safer and healthier for patients can start as simple as repainting. Or, if you’re a go big or go home kind of person, it might be time to consider that full scale remodel that your clinic has been in desperate need of for years.
