Using Modular Buildings as Healthcare Facilities

August 31, 2020 in Modular Buildings

The need for additional healthcare facilities in the United States is more apparent now than ever. While doctors and nurses are saving lives and tending to patients, it is essential that medical facilities have space for these patients as well as the technology and tools needed for medical staff to care for them.

Unfortunately, space can come at a premium, and hospitals and clinics are forced to consider constructing additional medical space or finding a temporary solution. Traditional construction can be slow and expensive, hindering medical professionals from focusing on testing and treating patients. Instead, a modular healthcare facility is an ideal solution for fast, functional space. From temporary, portable offices to something built for long term use, Satellite Shelters can construct the modular building you need for your healthcare facility.

Why Choose a Modular Healthcare Facility?

Modular buildings are safe, customizable, and perfectly suited to healthcare purposes. There are many reasons to utilize modular construction, especially if the project is a pressing need for coronavirus testing or treatment.

It’s Fast.

In traditional construction, a project must be done sequentially. From permits and design to site development and construction, most steps can only be accomplished after the previous one is finished. Construction of modular healthcare facilities is much faster. While you’re prepping your site and arranging codes and permits, the building is already under construction in a climate-controlled factory.

It’s Cost-Effective.

Most modular construction projects are more economical and efficient to construct than their traditional counterparts. Short turnaround cycles mean that you have less time to wait to occupy your building—and less waiting time means more patients treated.

It Can Do Everything You Need.

Modular buildings are fully customizable, and whatever you need for your healthcare facility, Satellite Shelters can provide. Some common features of our previously constructed medical facilities include:

  • Offices
  • Restrooms
  • Hand-washing stations
  • Decontamination rooms
  • Lockers
  • And more
