Lacey Clinic | Providence Medical Group Lacey, WA
The South Puget Sound region is growing rapidly, and the need for primary care facilities is an urgent issue. Two regional primary care organizations engaged TGB Architects convert an aging surplus inpatient clinic into a primary care facility to deliver a facility at a lower cost than new construction and deliver the project in a compressed time frame.
The Lacey Clinic is designed to operationally integrate these two entities by providing improved medical access to an underserved community. The surplus building, a former chemical dependency inpatient facility, was re-purposed to provide primary care and outpatient imaging services. The final design layout is combination of existing reconfigured space and an expanded new entry sequence, patient lobby, and registration area. The design process included several group design events working with stakeholders and front-line staff from both organizations to define a new operational and teaming model. The building expansion required the removal of several large Douglas Fir trees from the site. However, those trees did not go far- the trees were harvested and repurposed as structural supports in the entry and lobby.

“It was so neat to hear people talking about some of the original design meetings and mock-ups you facilitated. It is important that you fully grasp what was inspired from those meetings, that being pride, ownership and a healthy introduction to the PacMed/Providence teamwork what will be necessary for success.”
