Designed in the form of a traditional college field house, the Wellness & Education center at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center is one of three outpatient support facilities at this state-of-the-art, LEED Silver medical village designed by Gresham Smith. Drawing inspiration from the historic town of Americus, Georgia, we designed the facility to harmonize with the historic architectural vocabulary of the 76-bed, 190,000-square-foot hospital as well as the campus’ Women & Family Health Center and the Oncology & Surgery Center.

A Pillar of Support

A Pillar of Support

Offering a variety of support services to Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, the 18,500-square-foot outpatient facility was designed with the patient in mind and comprises a wellness and physical therapy gym, classrooms, and medical specialties clinics. Reclaimed wood not only serves as a unique accent but also contributes to LEED certification.
Maximum Exposure

Maximum Exposure

In the facility’s physical therapy gym, the use of reclaimed wood and a rubber athletic floor that contains high levels of recycled content also contributed to LEED points. The double-height gymnasium’s large windows overlook the medical village’s town square and flood the space with natural light. Reminiscent of structural frames found in older college buildings, exposed metal trusses in the roof create a distinctive design accent. Facilitating adaptability, the room is split into two separate zones—one for patient physical therapy and the other for employee fitness.
