RiverBend Medical Group is a multi-campus healthcare provider with locations in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. As a result of their commitment to meet the evolving needs of the communities they serve, as well as to adapt to the changing healthcare landscape, RiverBend has created an ongoing Facilities Upgrade Program.

Stratton Brook Associates works closely with RiverBend’s administration and clinical leaders to analyze their needs and prepare design documents for specific areas of renovation. Careful attention is given to approved budgets and the overall schedule of facility improvements to ensure new construction matches with physician recruiting efforts and the medical group’s cash flow. Work is carefully planned to reduce the impact on the ongoing clinical practice. This continuous planning partnership provides flexibility to react to changing circumstances and allows RiverBend to be responsive to their facility upgrades, saving time and money over a more traditional design and construction process.
