Middleton Family Medicine in Middleton, Mass., expanded its clinical services with a permanent drive-thru testing site and vaccination facility. The outdoor space is adjacent to the clinic and includes two lanes for vehicular traffic. Designed by Structured Solutions, a Peabody, Mass.-based project management firm, and constructed by McSweeney Construction and Development Corp. (Andover, Mass.), the project also converted a 250-square-foot interior space into a dedicated nurses’ workstation with direct access to the drive-thru space.
“It was extremely important to us to protect the health and safety of our dedicated staff, while delivering an important service to our patients,” Dr. Mark Allara, a provider at Middleton Family Medicine, said in a release. “Setting up a permanent outdoor location ensures we are providing convenient and hassle-free access to testing and vaccination for both COVID-19 and influenza for years to come.”
