Medical Office Relocation: Top Tips and Construction Guide

October 12, 2022 - Arminco Inc.

Did you know that more than 35 million people relocate in the United States alone? Relocating a medical office can be a challenging affair, but can help take one's business to the next level.

There are key things to remember when in the relocating process. The most important consideration is determining if an office relocation is worth the investment. Below we offer a few office relocation tips and suggestions.

Strategically Plan an Office Relocation

Relocations happen for a multitude of reasons. A doctor may choose to relocate his or her practice for personal reasons such as moving closer to family.

In many cases, medical professionals relocate their practice as a growth and expansion strategy. If this is the case, selecting a desirable location is imperative. Doctors will want to find a location that is easily accessible and is near a large patient population.

Equally important, doctors will need to consider the size of their new office. How big should the building be? What equipment will I need to bring and how much space does the equipment take?

If there is a team of doctors under one practice, size becomes even more of the essence.

These are all questions to consider early in the relocation process. Running a practice is running a business. Strategically plan the relocation.

Hire Effective Design and Construction Teams

Once a doctor develops early ideas about a new office space, it is now time to hire a professional architect to design the building. It is important to find a creative architect that has experience with medical office design.

Many architects value collaboration and input. The doctor will be a partner in the design process and can explain his or her vision to the architect.

After a design is finalized and a piece of property is acquired, construction can be underway.

One of the most important aspects to remember during the construction stage is that the building is built with respect to legal regulations. There is protocol in different states on how a medical office should be constructed.

Ensure your architect and construction manager collaborate during the process. This teamwork is essential for an effective relocation.

Find a Cost-Friendly Moving Company to Assist

Moving furniture, supplies, and equipment is an inevitable part of medical office relocation. In most cases, such items are very heavy and will require assistance to move.

Doctors have enough stress during the relocation process. Hiring a moving company will make the process easier. They will handle all items and will ensure a smooth move.

Moving is expensive, but some companies are most cost friendly than others. With a major relocation, saving any money is preferred.
