The Barnes-Jewish Center for Outpatient Health is the location for all resident clinics including obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, specialty care (ENT, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, urology), lab and radiology services, surgical and wound care, primary care, neurology and dermatology. The 12-story building is connected via an enclosed walkway to the Center for Advanced Medicine.
It was designed with functionality in mind. Larger exam rooms feature exam beds designed for comfort. The hallways are wide, allowing more space for patients in wheelchairs and with walkers.
Medical services provided at the center include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, gynecological procedures such as LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) and diagnostic hysteroscopy, and prostate, nerve and muscle biopsies. Other pluses in the center include collaborations that weren’t possible before, such as having diabetic educators in the same space as residents to assist with the management of diabetic patients.
