In an effort to add new programs and increase access to care, Manet implemented a program that would allow them to service an additional 5,000 patients a year. This entailed renovations to over 21,000 sf of their existing health center.
Work included phased renovations to 3-levels of the health center. Areas were reconfigured to house a centralized registration area, 25 new exams rooms, new counseling areas, and an entire floor dedicated to medical offices. A new vision center and pharmacy were also added.
The new addition was designed with an open concept, with many of the exam rooms situated along the perimeter of the building to allow natural light in. The exterior was also designed with the patient in mind. The entire facade received a new skin, and a large canopy was installed to cover and protect the patient drop-off and waiting area.
