Westage Medical Building
Vassar Brothers Medical Center trusted Westage with the first part of its 1998 hospital expansion. It required considerable ingenuity to place a 60,000 square foot, three-story structure and its associated 721-car garage on the Medical Center’s space-constrained campus.
Located on a cliff, alongside a state highway, this project was not without its challenges. An existing building had to be demolished, and a large quantity of rock removed. The building and garage were constructed simultaneously, by Westage, so that the first tenants and patients had parking from the very beginning. The structure connects to the Medical Center via an enclosed pedestrian bridge.
The 20,000 square-foot first floor was designed as a multiple modality imaging center. The Westage team was able to continually modify design well into the construction process to accommodate rapidly changing, site-specific equipment requirements.
The tenant base for this building includes the region’s largest cardiology group, the region’s only cardiac surgery group, an advanced imaging center, and a growing multi-specialty group. Because of its campus location, a diverse tenant base, high quality construction and recent interior upgrades, this site has been fully occupied since 2001.
