With a hospital at the north end of the city, Cleveland Clinic sought to provide convenient healthcare for the southern part of the Stuart, Florida community too. Gresham Smith partnered with the provider to design state-of-the-art family health center, which brings several physician groups together in one convenient location. By removing silos between practices and supporting efficiency, the new facility creates a streamlined, seamless experience for patients and provides the same high-quality care they can expect to receive at the hospital.

A Streamlined Space

A Streamlined Space

Gresham Smith’s team used Lean process improvement to plan the space. The clinical areas use a “front-of-house, back-of-house” approach and standardized exam rooms can flex to enhance efficiency. The second and third floors have identical layouts, which creates future flexibility as services lines expand and contract based on demand.
A Positive Patient Experience

A Positive Patient Experience

Healthy environments are core to Cleveland Clinic’s brand and Gresham Smith considered health in terms of business, environment and wellness when making decision choices. A monumental stair at the entry encourages healthy movement, while all entry and waiting have direct access to daylight and views creating comfortable spaces that respect patient privacy.
A Focus on Sustainability

A Focus on Sustainability

To provide additional protection against hurricanes, the design team raised the building’s elevation. Portions of the building’s exterior use dynamic glass, which blocks glare and controls heat gain to drive energy savings, while tilt-up construction methods offered additional sustainability and resiliency benefits.
Outfitted for the Future

Outfitted for the Future

The Center has an additional 14,000 square feet of shell space for an outpatient surgery center and other specialty services. Gresham Smith also worked with Cleveland Clinic to develop a site plan that can accommodate an additional medical office building in the future.
