The Vancouver Clinic

  • LOCATION: Vancouver, WA
  • COMPLETED: 2018

OVERVIEW

Vancouver Clinic is the largest private, multispecialty clinic in Clark County with more than 1,200 employees.  Clark County continues to grow — adding fifty thousand new residents since 2010 – and Vancouver Clinic is expanding to meet their needs.  The Vancouver Plaza Neighborhood Clinic is the first of two planned neighborhood clinics in 2019 that will partner with Humana to improve quality of care and access to care.

 

The program for the clinic expanded ambitiously beyond medical care to include social spaces for patients to participate in group activities, health education classes, wellness presentations, exercise classes, individual and group counseling.  The mixed-use spaces can be opened up to each other and to the lobby depending on the size of the events planned.  On the medical side, the clinic contains 11 patient rooms and a shared team workspace for MAs, nurses and doctors that has proven to result in improved patient outcomes compared to the traditional model of segregated care teams.

 

LSW partnered with Brand New, Kramer Gehlen Associates and Robertson & Olson to produce this design on an impressively short timeline to match the requirements of the fast-paced medical industry.
