Stillwater Medical Center Authority OKs building concept

STILLWATER, Okla. — A hospital support services building that will combine office and clinic space will not be built at Stillwater Medical Center’s West Sixth Avenue location.

The Stillwater Medical Center Authority Board of Trustees voted Tuesday evening to consider two building concepts for the West 12th Avenue campus, eliminating two more expensive options that placed the West Sixth Avenue facilty.

The concepts show the three floor 53,000 square foot building housing medical and office space on two floors. The middle floor would be used for expansion.

The hospital’s facilities board looked into different building concepts at both locations.

The first two concepts placed the building on the West Sixth Avenue campus near the hospital. However, costs to purchase land, prepare the space and parking would exceed $2 million not including the cost of the actual building. Putting the building at the campus on West 12th Avenue would cost $925,000 and could be completed more quickly. The West 12th Avenue concepts also do not include the cost of the building which would be the same at either site.

The facilities board voted to send only the two West 12th Avenue concepts to the trustees and the trustees voted to accept the concepts. Discussion by trustees showed the cost and construction time were major factors despite advantages of having the building closer to the north campus. Both concepts have different orientations to West 12th Avenue but are the same building in the same area.
