Outpatient Services Center
Glen Mills, PA / 15,000 SF
Francis Cauffman, a longtime partner of the Nemours Children's Health System, was engaged for the design and development of the Outpatient Services Center in Glen Mills, PA. Planned with the patient experience as the driving factor, the project focused on sports therapy, occupational therapy, orthopedics, cardiology, ophthalmology, neurology, behavioral health and diagnostic imaging services. Key adjacencies between specialties allow for limited patient traffic between disciplines and shared clinical core support spaces allow for consolidated programmatic needs and efficient care flow.
The use of color was important in emphasizing distinction and aiding visitors in wayfinding between specialties within the clinical zone. The project also included the design of a high energy sports therapy gym to appeal to the adolescent age group while designated safe quiet zones protect toddlers and children. In addition, the Nemours brand was also heavily enforced throughout the reception and waiting area of the facility.
