How to Determine the Best Size for Your New Healthcare Office

The scenario: You’re trying to design your new healthcare office, but you have no idea where to start.
Whether you’re building a brand new office or simply relocating your old practice, one of the most important factors to consider is the size of your new space. Of course there are standards like allotting x square feet per working practitioner. However, in order to design the best space possible, you must consider what will work best for your unique practice rather than simply following the existing standards.

  • Here are some questions to ask yourself when planning the design of your new space:
  • How big or small does your new healthcare office need to be in order for you to best serve your patients?
  • Do you need special rooms for holding equipment or storage?
  • How much space do you need for procedure and/or exam rooms?
  • How much space should you allow for waiting room areas?
  • On average, how many patients will wait in the area every 30 minutes?
  • How much do you see your practice growing in 5-10 years?
    • Plan 20-30% more room than you think you need in order to accommodate for future growth

Once you’ve answered these questions, you should have a better understanding of how much space you need in your healthcare office.
