UW Health Union Corners ClinicMadison, WI
PRA was tasked with designing a building that supports an efficient flow of patients and staff through an on stage/off stage design in exam areas. As a result, PRA designed two doors to each exam room, one for the patients to enter and one for the staff to use. The design allows the physician and nursing staff to remain in close proximity to the patients while also fostering collaboration and communication among staff.
The clinic is designed to replace the traditional multi-station check-in counters in each clinic with self-service kiosks. The building is also located along a busy thoroughfare in downtown Madison, thus requiring entrances on opposite sides of the building and a central circulation “spine.” The project is slated to achieve LEED Certification through the use of local and recycled materials, energy efficiency, irrigation-free landscaping and several other sustainable design techniques.
