Ascent Emergency Medical Center
In summer 2018, Wisestaff completed its most recent construction management project – the ground up buildout of Ascent emergency room in Houston, TX. The 7180 SF space includes seven treatment rooms and two imaging rooms in addition to a conference/meeting room, designated office spaces, a state-of-the-art imaging suite and a COLA-certified laboratory.
Wisestaff managed the entire construction process including scouting a location, securing permits, vetting the architectural firm and general contractor, supervising the architectural and building processes and coordinating the interior design. The build-out includes all new fire sprinkler, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, medical gas, fire alarm and nurse call systems. The project also features a new ambulance canopy and other miscellaneous exterior improvements. The $1.6M build-out of this outpatient care center was completed one month earlier than scheduled and approximately $100k under budget.
Wisestaff continues to support the daily operation of Ascent, to include contract negotiations, staffing/human resources, facility and medical supply management, clinical supportive services, radiology operations (x-ray, CT, ultrasound), adherence to federal and state regulations, and community outreach/advertising. The current level of services at Ascent includes diagnostic and treatment of both physical and mental health ailments with referrals made to a variety of different specialists daily.
As a physician managed company, we are very well positioned to replicate our success during the entire continuum of care for similar medical facilities and outpatient clinics. Wisestaff maintains a successful completion record on government contracts along with an excellent financial credit rating and strong banking support to maintain adequate access to funding for future projects.
