Story County Medical Center Outpatient Unit Expansion
Architect: INVISION Architecture
Owner: Story County Medical Center
Location: Nevada, Iowa
Category A: Built: Less than $25 million in construction cost
This one story addition and renovation to an existing hospital promotes a zoned healthcare campus. All outpatient services including primary care, therapy, rehabilitation and wellness, are consolidated in a state of the art facility focused on quality of care. Natural light, views and carefully crafted spaces enhance the patient experience. A sensitive use of new materials complement the existing palette but provide a more progressive and energy efficient design. The Ipé and terracotta facades are woven into the interior design, complemented by additional natural materials and graphics that promote health and wellness. The design is adaptable and forward-thinking to accommodate growth and transition.
"An excellent functional plan using ‘on-stage, off-stage’ concept for clinics, and direct way-finding for patients. An appropriate and inviting shift to wellness for a small community that says, 'The highest quality care is delivered here'." ~ Jury statement
