Nashville’s Health Care Industry and Modular Building: How the Two Can Work Together
Affordable Solutions Using Modular Construction
In the past, individuals that didn’t have access to a local hospital were served through the efforts of mobile clinics (refurbished shuttles, vans, or trailers) that drove into remote areas and offered service to residents. While an incredibly worthwhile effort, it doesn’t always help those who need medical care in emergency situations or those who need medical care on a continuing basis.
As lawmakers propose the creation of COH networks in rural areas, the huge budgets and long timelines that come with building new medical facilities in remote areas are two roadblocks to providing the necessary medical care for rural residents. As a permanent solution, modular construction offers the ability to expand coverage areas and medical services with speed and less capital cost. Modular buildings can be customized to meet the unique needs of urgent care clinics, outpatient surgery centers, Perth dental practice, primary care offices, dialysis facilities, and mental health facilities.
Traditional construction requires heavy machinery and laborers to travel to remote areas to complete construction on a new facility. This can cause delays, bring about extra costs, and quickly push a project out of scope. The off-site operations used in modular construction ensure tightly-controlled capital expenses and keep additional expenditures to a minimum. Additionally, taking weather delays out of the equation, a modular medical facility can be delivered, assembled, and start serving the community sooner.
