Pediatric Associates of the Northwest (PANW)‘s new clinic sets a standard in the Portland market for adaptive reuse of historic, commercial space into contemporary, efficient medical space. PANW relocated their practice into the historic, nine-story Montgomery Park building in Portland, Oregon, which first opened as a Montgomery Ward national distribution center in 1921. The new 12,000 square-foot space has enabled the clinic to expand their comprehensive pediatric services to include preventative and well child care, online e-visits, psychology, speech therapy, and an asthma care registered nurse.
The design of the new clinic embraces the medical home model by focusing on patient-centered workflows and dynamic, healing environments. A higher ratio of exam rooms to physicians minimizes patient wait time. The space also features an energetic, healing environment for patients and families, featuring interior design with vibrant colors, shapes and furniture.
