WOBURN, MA—Maugel DeStefano Architects, a New England-based award-winning architectural firm celebrating 30 years of shaping exceptional environments for innovation and growth, announced that it has completed the design of the 20,000-square-foot medical office expansion at Woburn Pediatrics Associates and Woburn Pediatric Psychological Services in Woburn, MA.
Located at 7 Alfred Street, the renovation will increase capacity to 42 fully accessible exam rooms and nine behavioral health treatment rooms. The expanded facility enables the practices to meet the growing demand for pediatric patient services in Woburn and the surrounding area.
Maugel DeStefano worked as a strategic advisor to Woburn Pediatrics throughout the planning and site evaluation process. After a thorough analysis, Woburn Pediatrics elected to remain at the Alfred Street location and build-out additional space on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The Pediatric Psychological Services suite, currently located on the 1st floor, will relocate to newly renovated space on the 2nd floor. The move allows for better connection and communication between both offices, while maintaining a private waiting room and treatment rooms for behavioral health patients and their families.
Exceptional patient care is the highest priority for Woburn Pediatrics. To ensure the new healthcare suites fully meet the needs of patients, families, and staff, Maugel DeStefano conducted a comprehensive survey to gain insight into each user group’s requirements. Survey recommendations were then incorporated into the redesign of the medical suites, creating a welcoming, vibrant, and functional environment tailored for all ages.
“The high standards and dedication to exceptional patient care at Woburn Pediatrics inspired the design of their expanded medical suites,” said Colby Cavanagh, architect at Maugel DeStefano Architects. “The professionals at Woburn Pediatrics care deeply about their patient’s wellbeing and pursue their work with great enthusiasm. The new design reflects that culture by creating a vibrant space with jewel tone colors and bold patterns, which also serve as visual wayfinding cues throughout patient care areas.”
Construction will begin in Spring 2023 and be completed in phases to allow the practices to remain open during construction. Completion of the final phase is scheduled for Spring 2024. In addition to Maugel DeStefano Architects, other team members included Design Day Mechanical, Shepherd Engineering, Inc., and SFC Engineering.
