In 2005, Gem City Bone & Joint employed Plan One / Architects to design and build a new approximate 5,014 square foot new medical office building. This building serves several physicians who travel to the clinic regularly to see patients, perform radiological services and surgeries. The building design included many exam rooms, a procedure room, offices for the use of the physicians rotating through the area and an open lobby area that offers plenty of natural lighting. As most patients come to the clinic with orthopedic problems, accessibility was a crucial design consideration. The drive through portico feature allows patients to be dropped off and picked up near the front door with some protection from the elements. Consultation with a physicist was required to incorporate lead shielding into the areas where the clinics state-of-the art X-Ray equipment and extremity MRI are located.
Completed in October 2006, the project finished under the original construction
cost estimates by about 3%.

The Administration and Warehouse Complex serves as the main entrance to the prison, and also serves as the mail sorting area, administrative offices, and the maintenance and warehouse facility for the prison complex.
