Healing by design

March 9, 2017

SRS Rancho Bernardo

The new Sharp Rees-Stealy Rancho Bernardo clinic is the largest in the system to date, with two new medical specialties, double the urgent care capacity and patient-focused design features.

Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers opened its newest location in Rancho Bernardo on February 21, 2017, which features several improvements to continue delivering the highest quality care for patients.

At 100,000 square feet, the new Rancho Bernardo building provides the most space for patient care among Sharp Rees-Stealy’s 22 locations, and has plenty of room for growth.

“We saw an opportunity to grow along with Rancho Bernardo and the surrounding communities,” says Dr. Alan Bier, president of Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group. “The spacious medical center will allow us to continue to provide high-quality, compassionate care to our patients by offering enhancements such as larger exam rooms and the ability to add more physicians and services over time.”

Leaders also included efficiency programs piloted at Sharp Rees-Stealy’s Genesee location. The first is straightforward in concept: stocking and organizing every exam room exactly the same. Research found this simple process helps doctors and nurses find supplies quicker than a non-optimized room, and reduces the number of times they need to leave the room, keeping them focused on caring for their patient instead.

The other tactic is called “co-location,” which places the work space for each primary care doctor and nurse together to ensure efficient communication and work before the day starts and in between patient appointments.

“It works surprisingly well,” says Dr. James Lin, an internal medicine doctor at the Rancho Bernardo location. “My nurse and I are able to quickly discuss what our patients need, which reduces wait time and allows us to provide the highest-quality care.”

Other highlights of the building include:

  • The addition of allergy and OBGYN departments
  • Expanded urgent care space — including 18 exam rooms and one procedure room — which is double the size of the previous urgent care
  • Free parking for 500 cars in the garage and surface parking
  • Ample amounts of natural light and outdoor views through floor-to-ceiling glass walls
  • Over 200 commissioned photographs of local landscapes and animals by artist Aaron Chang
