About Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health (NOAH):
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health (NOAH) provides affordable, high-quality healthcare for communities throughout the Phoenix area. With a professional, bilingual staff, NOAH focuses on helping patients achieve optimal health while respecting their diverse needs and cultures. The organization’s services range from primary care to speech and physical therapy to chronic disease management
Client Needs & Challenges:
The NOAH organization recently decided to relocate its Palomino Health Center to a new, larger, state-of-the-art facility in North Phoenix in order to more effectively serve the needs of patients. Services provided at this location include family medicine, behavioral health, dental care, community resource enrollment assistance, and a QuickCare walk-in clinic.
Faced with the need to transform a gray shell space into a general medical office, NOAH hired LaunchPM to manage the build-out of the new location and the office move. One unique challenge presented by this project was the handling of costly medical equipment.
The LaunchPM Solution:
With over 25 years of Project Management experience, the LaunchPM team is adept at working with medical groups—as well as businesses in several other industries—to ensure that their commercial moves and build-outs are completed seamlessly. We began the process of creating a new space for the NOAH Palomino Health Center by assessing the organization’s needs and goals. As part of pre-project planning, we also helped NOAH establish a schedule and budget. The many steps in the project included developing architectural plans for the space and installing mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems. Structural work included the installation of new curbs on the roof to support mechanical units.
Throughout the project, LaunchPM provided services such as permitting coordination, design and construction management, quality control, and more. As with any of our other projects, our goal was to ensure that the new space met the client’s expectations and was completed on time and within budget. When construction was complete, we assisted the NOAH Palomino Health Center team with moving their equipment, furniture, and supplies and managed the installation of these items at the new location.
NOAH Palomino Health Center’s new space is well-equipped with medical office essentials like a waiting room, exam and treatment rooms, staff offices, and a meeting room. In this comfortable and modern space, the NOAH organization will be able to continue to fulfill its mission of providing accessible, reliable care for patients in need.
