Stegenga + PARTNERS worked diligently with the client to understand their vision for the facility. The resulting space is clean and modern while also being functional and efficient for innovative, integrated, evidence-based treatments. The client emphasized their desire for a welcoming atmosphere that would put patients at ease while also being mindful of their budget. The Architect implemented warm, natural materials such as wood and stone to create a sense of comfort and tranquility. The interior was designed with a neutral color palette that is both calming and inviting.
The Ambulatory Surgery Center is functional and efficient, with state-of-the-art equipment and an operating room that is sized just right for the surgical team. A separate pre-op and post-op area ensures that the care process is streamlined, and patients receive the best possible care. The racetrack layout provides a centralized teaming area with increased visibility, communication, and collaboration for care givers. The surgical suite is equipped with the latest technology, seamless flooring, modular storage, and provides flexibility for increased utilization. The ceiling system creates organized and predictable equipment configurations, reduces airborne pathogens, and helps in mitigating infection control.
The adjacent Clinic is designed with the patient in mind, featuring comfortable seating areas, private exam rooms, and positive distraction. The interior design included a mix of natural materials and modern finishes to create a welcoming and comfortable environment. The reception area was designed to be bright and welcoming, with ample natural light and views of the surrounding greenery.
Throughout the design process, Stegenga + PARTNERS approached stewardship of the client’s resources with open collaboration to ensure that the design provides value while also creating a high-quality space. Cost-effective design choices such as durable materials that would require minimal maintenance and incorporating energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems to reduce operating costs provide solutions within the client’s budget.
The Alliance Lake Hearn ASC and Clinic is responsible both in design and functionality. Intentionally designed with a welcoming atmosphere and modern materials, the plan is based on increasing efficiency and satisfaction through a functional layout.
