Minimally Invasive Vascular Center

The Minimally Invasive Vascular Center (MIVC) offers a variety of vascular and endovascular services to patients. For this project, Forrester constructed a new ambulatory surgical center in Laurel, Maryland. MIVC is the first of its kind in the County. It is a state-of-the-art, 27,000 SF, 3 story building with stunning glass and metal panel features on the exterior.

The basement level includes private parking, a loading dock, and storage rooms. The first floor has six exam rooms, two ultrasound rooms, four Class C procedure rooms, changing rooms, waiting rooms, a Class A operating room, a reception area, and a lobby with a Juice Bar. The second floor has executive offices with private restrooms and a large conference room. There is also a green roof on this level. The facility was designed with healing in mind and features high-end finishes of tile, wood, and glass, with custom lighting and a juice bar that provides patients with a relaxed, comfortable environment.

The building’s exterior is comprised of insulated metal panels, aluminum punched windows and an aluminum storefront. The facility also features two elevators, power sliding doors, and five rectangular skylights above the reception area. The building was designed and built to meet LEED Silver Certification criteria.
