ETSU Clinical Education Building 11

Johnson City, Tennessee

The first in a planned medical office park in Johnson City, the East Tennessee State University Clinical Education Building II (CEB II) is nestled in a wooded site with great views of the Appalachian Mountains. With 24 exam spaces, 6 physician offices, 2 procedure rooms, and a cardiology suite the facility began seeing patients in March 2009.

Among comments from a peer-review jury: This project uses daylight and an everyday material palette in a way that challenges the conventions of health care design. The floor plan diagram is clean and efficient while the section effectively brings light in. The daylighting alone merits distinction. Nothing is extra. The details are thoughtful and not overdone. The client got a lot for their money.

Project Notes:

Organizational clarity and efficient flow for patients, physicians, and nurses was a key design driver. A simple patient loop starts at check-in / waiting, moves through triage to the exam rooms, back corridor, and to check-out. The nursing station and physician's offices are centrally located to the exam rooms.
