Burris Construction has built five of the Ocoee Regional Health Corporation buildings, according to Bill Moats, president and chief executive officer for ORHC.
Ocoee Regional Health Corporation and Benton Family Health Care Center now reside in their new location just off Highway 411, north of Benton.
The 21,270-square-foot facility was built for the future of expansion in mind, according to Moats.
The two-story structure with a full basement features two colors of brick veneer.
Doug Caywood of Downtown Design Studio in Cleveland said, “The structure is symmetrically designed with the central drop-off area and an elevator tower to one side and a stair tower to the other side. Most spaces provide large operable windows that also provide wonderful views of the countryside.” Caywood was the architect on the new construction project.
A covered drop-off area allows patients to stay out of inclement weather. The waiting area is just inside the door and plenty of seating is available for patients who visit the Benton Family Health Care Center.
The waiting room has a custom floor tile medallion using the blue, gold, and tan colors that are highlighted throughout the building.
There are two elevators in the building, one at the front of the building that provides accessibility to the second level for patients and a second at the rear of the building for administrative access to the basement and second level.
The first floor includes 12 exam rooms, four Provider Offices, X-ray room, lab, nurse’s stations, break room, business office, and file room.
In addition, the first floor facility includes an expansive meeting room with seating for 144 associates, plus a food preparation area.
The meeting venue will allow ORHC to host meetings and training sessions for their employees from all of the Southeast Tennessee counties they serve.
Facilities in Benton, Cleveland, Decatur, Dayton, Pikeville and Coalmont provide primary care for residents.
Administrative space for the multicounty corporation was planned for the second story. Spaces include nine private offices, the business office, file storage, workroom, reception office, reception and two conference rooms. The conference rooms are private but can be opened to accommodate larger meetings.
Another custom floor tile medallion is centrally located in the waiting area outside of the two conference rooms.
The basement level provides the central staffing, Internet Technology support spaces, and storage for the facility.
Moats said the new facility was built for growth and expansion in the future as their need for primary health care in the region grows.
Dee Burris of Burris Construction said, “the professional atmosphere in which Mr. Moats creates and courteousness of his staff not only made this project seamless, but also became a tutorial for himself in running a professional operation.”
Ocoee Regional Health Center and Benton Family Health Care Center are located at 6784 Highway 411.
