Paradigm Health System Breaks Ground On Expansive Northshore Addition
SLIDELL, LA – Paradigm Health System has broken ground on a state-of-the-art, 10,000-square-foot facility adjacent to Sterling Surgical Hospital on its Slidell campus.
The new construction will house additional clinic space and radiology suites for Paradigm Health System physicians, both current and future. With a good number of new physicians and staff joining the Paradigm team in 2016, and the same expeditious growth anticipated for 2017, the health system was dramatically outgrowing available office space when they decided on the expansion, Paradigm reps said.
“This multispecialty care center will further extend our ability to offer our patients efficient, collaborative diagnostic and treatment services all under one roof,” says Kevin Schneider, president of Paradigm Healthy System. “This new addition is a strong example of our dedication to growth and a symbol of our success.”
The two-story expansion is in addition to Paradigm’s offices in Mandeville, Lacombe, Slidell, New Orleans East and Metairie. Schneider stresses that the building is the next step of multiple future phases as they enjoy continued growth on the Northshore and in the New Orleans area.
According to Schneider, the health system has made a substantial investment to carry forth its vision of offering facilities with high-end environments and red-carpet, white-glove service. Rather than the industry-standard, concrete block building, the new clinic will be airy and brightly lit from enormous windows allowing in natural light.
“The attention to detail on the building is such that it is designed to give people the feel that they are in a warm, welcoming environment rather than sitting in a straight-backed chair waiting to see a doctor,” Schneider says. “The interior will resemble more boutique urban hotel than physician’s office. We feel strongly—and patient comment cards distinctly agree—that this concept makes for the optimal, patient-centered experienced.”
Beyond comfort, the campus construction offers the utmost in convenience, Paradigm reps said. Patients who require surgery can leave their physician’s office and walk across the parking lot to pre-op at Sterling Surgical. For physicians who work in the new building, visits to their post-op patients on their lunch hour and after work is that same short walk away.
“How nice is it, from a patient and a physician’s perspective to have that kind of access?” asks Schneider. “The value of the campus experience is enormous.”
“There’s something emotional about new construction,” Schneider said about the new building to be completed by this summer. “The substantial pride we all feel about our organization will only grow as the building nears completion. It’s a manifestation of our vision to continue providing the very best to our patients in the community.”
