“The clinic’s expanded resources are expected to reduce waiting times and allow patients to be treated faster than in the past.”
Harris Health serves one of America’s fastest-growing urban areas, which includes more than 1.2 million uninsured or underinsured residents.
Intensive workshops with key physicians, clinicians and administrators addressed the challenges of a changing healthcare industry and defined the clinical expansion program. The design – a five-story, 172,000-sq.-ft. facility and adjoining eight-story parking garage on the existing health system administration headquarters site – accommodates the growing demand for outpatient care.
Smith Clinic, Harris Health’s first outpatient specialty facility, offers diagnostic and specialty services including oncology, neurology and dermatology. The facility includes four floors of modular specialty clinics that can be modified to accommodate the each group’s unique clinical needs.
The plan focuses on every aspect of patient comfort, including concierge services and one-stop convenience that allows for better coordination of outpatient care. This shared location ensures speedier diagnoses and enables staff to monitor the outcome of patient visits by staying with them every step of the way.
