St. James Healthcare and several medical groups partnered to bring this new medical office building (MOB) to fruition. The facility creates a medical campus for Butte, Montana, expanding the scope of healthcare services available in the southwest Montana region. The four-story, 65,700-square-foot structure joins to the existing hospital via a two-story connector, linking the MOB to the hospitals main lobby for the convenience of patients, physicians and staff. An imaging center, an ambulatory surgery center, a laboratory and a number of physicians clinics are housed in the building.
NAC Architecture worked with the Butte-Silver Bow Historic Preservation Office to design the exterior as a contemporary medical facility that respects the historical character and materials of Butte. The buildings facade features masonry, metal and a glass curtainwall. Offering quality healthcare with convenient patient access, the MOB integrates multiple patient services in one centralized location. The architecture and interior design address the facilitys objective to create one-stop healthcare shopping in a patient- and family-friendly environment.
