The Atlantic Group's Solution for a Nonprofit Medical Facility Creates a Personalized Experience for Patients
Intercare Community Health Center is an outpatient medical and dental facility that is located in Benton Harbor, Michigan. A nonprofit organization, Intercare provides healthcare to the underserved community, people who are uninsured, underinsured and migrant farm workers, regardless of their ability to pay.
Intercare’s facility is 40,000 square feet and houses approximately 100 full-time and part-time physicians, nurses, medical assistants, physician’s assistants, lab technicians and administrators.
Intercare wanted to provide the same beautiful, healing environment that a patient would receive at a for-profit facility. Their goal was to reduce hospital visits by providing an excellent patient experience.
The Atlantic Group, along with Designer Emily Stampanato, needed to ensure that the design, as well as the furniture for the exam rooms and waiting area would be accessible to people with varying needs.
