Mercy Health System desired to bring disparate physicians together under one roof into an integrated facility.The system also desired to utilize this project as their first deployment of the EPIC electronic health record system. The new medical center provides approximately 105,000 square feet in a four-story structure for clinical and medical uses. Access to the building is provided via two main entrances; one at the plaza level and one at the first floor. A covered connection to the hospital building to provide direct access for clinical staff and patients.
Two main lobbies filled with warm colors and daylight lead to easily identifiable suite entries. The suites include an obstetrics center, primary care, cardiologist with rehabilitation, gastrointestinal center, lab and imaging center. A healing garden and an entrance shaded by translucent canopies contribute to the relaxed healing nature of this building.
