Diekema Hamann was hired by Spectrum Health for architectural services for their new ambulatory integrated care center in North Muskegon, Michigan. It is conveniently located off of US-31 on a beautifully wooded site overlooking Bear Creek.
The intent of the integrated care campus is to benefit patients by allowing them to receive multiple health care services under one roof. The building is sited to maximize views of the natural surroundings; exam and consultation rooms overlook the wetland and creek. The large curved curtainwall and canopy signify the main entrance and invite users into the building. Six semi-private check-in / check-out stations and two self check-in kiosks welcome patients and minimize wait times. Within the two “exam pods”, staff are located in open work stations surrounded by the exam rooms, which promotes communication between patients and staff. Daylight penetrates deep within the building through clerestory windows located around the perimeter of the exam pods and over a community room which will be used for educational classes and larger group gatherings.
