What agency inspects medical facilities such as doctor offices? I know of one that’s two stories, doesn’t have an elevator or an automatic door for people in wheelchairs or crutches. Who would I contact?
The city of Lawrence inspects medical buildings that are under construction, including new construction and renovations, according to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city. Existing private facilities are required to make accessibility improvements that are readily achievable. Improvements that are not readily achievable may be required as alterations to the building are made, depending on the scope of the alteration project. Inquiries and complaints regarding the ADA can be submitted to the Development Services Division at 832-7700.
