Design Achievement – The Summit Tri-Star Digestive Wellness Clinic responds to the seasonal light and landscape changes of Northeast Ohio by balancing views to nature with the need for patient privacy. This design of this medical office building creates a serene healthcare setting for endoscopic and gastroenterology outpatient services. The contemporary scheme features a glass pavilion for reception and waiting rooms followed by streamlined circulation systems and functional zones. The design creates a dedicated doctor’s office area with seven exam rooms, two procedure rooms, as well as related support. Using the time of day and change in seasons to subtly create dynamic transitions throughout the building results in a tranquil, cohesive environment conducive to healing and emotional well-being.
Scope Summary – The 11,700-SF free-standing medical office is located on a five-acre site in a neighborhood undergoing a transition from residential to commercial. The outpatient endoscopy center includes two procedure rooms, and nine pre- and post- procedure patient holding bays along with related support areas including scope processing, and a nurses’ station. A discharge vestibule is conveniently located adjacent to the main entry. Employee and physician amenities include administrative functions, a staff lounge, and physician work areas. Interior spaces, such as exam rooms, patient holding bays, staff amenities, and waiting areas are all designed with strategically placed expanses of clear and translucent glass, balancing the need for natural light and views with patient privacy.
