How to Plan Size and Layout for Medical Space for Rent in NYC

by Virtuoso Realty Group Selling & Leasing Commercial Real Estate

The question of how to decide the right size of medical office space for rent in NYC is still haunting you?

Well, not anymore! What matters the most is the expected count of service providers and the patients. 

The ideal plan for medical space has 3 rooms for examination for Medical Practitioner. However, this average may vary. Some of the medical physicians do not need much space. They can extend their services efficiently with two rooms on hold. It also depends on how many patients you expect to see in an hour- that too at the peak level.

If you calculate the time spent on one patient and the other blocking timings for appointments with other staffing changes, you can easily get a fair idea about the size of your medical space

Size requirements for medical space in NYC

The general rule applicable says in favor of 1000- 1500 sq ft. for one medical Practitioner and an additional 1200 sq ft. for every team member added. The profession such as psychiatrists can carry their practices with lesser space, as the equipment requirement stays limited in their case.

If you are planning to add other services and examination facilities in the future, then plan to have medical space for rent in NYC accordingly.

Size requirements of the medical room and Examination room

The medical examinations can be conducted efficiently in the room size of 10*10 ft. Having a bigger space than that can help you keep more equipment and appliances to be used or treatment in there.  Also, remember that patients feel comfortable and get less anxious in a spacious room. The examination rooms must be huge enough to fit in all the people in it comfortably, which are:

  • Medical Practitioner or physician
  • Nurse
  • Medical assistant
  • Patient,
  • One accompanying family member

Make sure that you follow all the necessary guidelines applicable for patients with disabilities, such as the provision of lifts, ramps, etc.

Let the layout of your medical space have an extra room for nurses, where they can note all the vital information points such as BP level and weight.

While applying for a plan or fully equipped medical space, make sure to comply with HIPAA and ADA guidelines and norms. Also, consider the types of medical procedures that practitioners are going to perform daily and no. of visits in a day.

Possible factors that may go wrong with size requirements

You surely don’t want to put everyone in an insufficient amount of space. Also, it may lead to lesser productivity levels with regular turn up of patients. And indeed nobody plans to see rooms getting wasting and causing the burden of overheads.
