The City of Conroe has seen a dramatic increase in its population as the Woodlands area of Greater Houston expanded. The Lonestar Family Health team wanted to serve this growing population, and so the team built a new primary hub in the Conroe area designed to accommodate their increased patient load and engage with a larger portion of the Conroe community. The Lonestar Family Health Center, a distinctive, modern medical home model healthcare facility, provided quality, patient-centered care, clear wayfinding and amenities for a broad spectrum of Conroe residents. Though the new clinic space was fairly large, a pod-based design created an intimate feel for patients and enabled coordinated, quality care. The clinic’s entrance featured a large, inviting atrium with natural sun light that guided patients to a single check-in space. From the check-in, patients traveled to one of the five practice area pods. Each pod featured a fifteen person waiting room that created the feel of a smaller, private care doctor’s office. The pods’ were located in close proximity to one another. Patients who needed to see more than one doctor that day had a simple journey to another part of the Health Center. Interconnected staff space between pods allowed Lonestar physicians to quickly conference and provide coordinated personalized care. This sort of convenient, patient-friendly design was also incorporated into the buildings’ community-oriented service offerings as well.
Our spaces inform guests, direct the public, comfort patients, facilitate staff and doctors, and celebrate life. Corgan partners with you and your team to define a truly appropriate and viable solution for your facility. Then, we measure every inch of space against the demands of the building's users; the elements that challenge it; and the land that it inhabits to achieve optimal functionality.
Modifying, expanding or developing new healthcare facilities requires an integrated and multi-tracked planning approach. From the equipment and regulations to the interior spaces and parking facilities, we understand the operational, clinical and financial objectives.
