Kaiser Permanente’s Irwindale Specialty MOB serves the community through KP’s new approach to outpatient care - Reimagining Ambulatory Care Design, or RAD. RAD focuses on a welcoming and streamlined member experience, environments that foster healthcare team collaboration, and the latest technology framed in a retail setting. At the heart of the design is a large, protected Public Square, designed to draw the community in to learn about health and self-care. Located above one of Irwindale’s quarries, the KP Irwindale SMOB serves as an outpatient center to the Baldwin Park Medical Center. This project used an AC team delivery method to ensure design and sustainability features were retained within budget and on schedule.

• Recognize design strategies that create a welcoming environment, which responds to and draws in the neighboring community. 
• Understand Kaiser Permanente’s new model – Reimagining Ambulatory care Design, or RAD. 
• Grasp the technical and procedural innovations used to increase construction and delivery efficiencies. 
• Understand the strategies used create a site-specific building tailored to the needs of its customers and the surrounding environment.
