Staff of OSU Rardin Family Practice Center celebrated on May 16 the completion of renovations that will provide patients with an added measure of comfort and convenience. The upgrade included better floor and wall surfaces, more open spaces and brighter lighting, a modern decor and better patient care areas.
These renovations follow, and are made possible by, the switch to the electronic medical record (EMR) that has also helped staff provide safer, more efficient care.
“With the change to EMR, we had a lot of unused space that formerly held paper charts. In addition, our lobby was too small and not optimal for patient flow or privacy,” explains Becky Wilkins, associate director for Ambulatory Services.
“We completely gutted both areas to create a new space. Not only is the new space beautiful, it was designed with patient flow in mind and gives a great first impression of our Medical Center,” she adds.
