The HoltonFamily Health Center is located in Holton, Kansas, a small but growing community 30 miles north of Topeka, the capital city ofKansas. This clinic is another community outreach of the Community Health Care Systems of Onaga, Kansas, a corporation dedicated to providing quality health care to rural communities in northeast Kansas.
Comprised of 10,300 square feet of space, the building houses two functions, each operating in approximately one half of the building area.
On one side, a medical clinic provides space for three physicians to attend to their patients in nine exam rooms. With laboratory and radiology services available on site, diagnostic services can be provided quickly and efficiently for the patients, and minor procedures performed as necessary.
The other side of the building serves a dual purpose as a fitness center
and as a rehabilitation center for the physician's patients in need of physical and occupational therapy. As the only fitness center in the community, it has exceeded expectations. With a separate entrance, the fitness center can maintain longer operating hours and operate independently from the clinic. Patrons can come and go without crossing paths with those seeking medical attention. Large windows on the north and south, and a large expanse of clerestory glazing provides rural vistas and ample daylighting in the approximately 2,000 square feet space.
The structure is wood framed with the exception of the locker room area which is constructed of reinforced concrete masonry and capped with a reinforced concrete slab, thereby serving as a storm shelter when needed. Five gas fired furnaces sit on the concrete cap slab within the attic space above. Along with remote condensers, heating and cooling is provided to five zones within the building.
The clinic has been a tremendous success in Holton, providing this small town with quality health care in a pleasing environment.
