The Design Plan
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Medicine was challenged to create a new facility for their billing and patient services teams, call center, and patient access departments. The UAB Medicine group consists of the UAB Hospital, UAB Health Systems, and UAB Health Services Foundation, and these billing teams were being consolidated into one location. The existing 193,000 square foot facility needed to provide employees with individual workspaces, as well as training spaces and open collaboration areas.
Amy Cope, Facilities Project Specialist for UAB Medicine, along with Health Services Foundation (HSF) administration, Johnson Development, and KPS Group, oversaw the efforts to create a welcoming and highly functional space that could be used by the newly combined team. National was chosen to outfit a broad range of areas including private offices, training spaces, conference rooms, break rooms, huddle rooms, and a large dine-in cafeteria.
