The Mt. Airy Health & Wellness Pavilion — a joint-venture of Carroll Hospital and Frederick Memorial Hospital — is located in Mt. Airy, Maryland, in what had been an under-utilized retail shopping center. Design challenges included: providing ease-of-access and way-finding; bringing daylight into the deep public spaces; and changing the retail character of the building.
The project entailed programming 65,000 SF of medical outpatient spaces for the two hospitals and their sub-tenants. The building includes: clinic spaces for comprehensive medical health services; a phlebotomy lab, OBGYN tenant, Pediatric tenant, Rehabilitation tenant, Imaging tenant, Urgent Care tenant; and a large Community Room for community health education.
Lean design principals were incorporated into the planning to provide staff efficiency, and to minimize variation and reduce waste.
Project completed by Kann Partners, who is now Michael Graves Architecture.
