Providence Medical Park Spokane Valley

Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center

As the largest healthcare hub between Seattle and Minneapolis, Providence Medical Park Spokane Valley expanded access to care by focusing on speed-to-market and efficient project delivery while maintaining high standards for patient experience. This 134,000 SF state-of-the-art facility features an urgent care center, surgical suites, advanced radiology services including MRI, oncological radiology, primary and specialty care clinics, retail pharmacy, and offices for primary care doctors. The clinic supports 44 doctors and 12 nurse practitioners or physician assistants, and houses specialty clinics for cardiology and oncology. The short-stay observation unit allows patients to recover on-site (and within hours) rather than stay overnight. The 4-OR Ambulatory Surgery Center optimizes throughput with pairs of pre-op rooms connected directly to each OR and a shared recovery bays on the other side.

Recognizing that nature can play a role in healing process, the building’s site connects both patients and staff to daylight and the landscape gardens adjacent to the major circulation spaces. The program is distributed into two distinct buildings connected by a ‘hub’ of public spaces. This separation of the more acute services – surgery and urgent care – from the less acute practices – primary and specialty care clinics, result in less congestion at points of entry and an ease of passage for patients. Registration, waiting, café, sacred and conference spaces within the ‘hub’ open to views of the courtyard gardens. Materials have been selected to reinforce connections to the natural environment – stone-like concrete block, zinc panels, glass wood and textured fabrics.
