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.
Key design drivers for this project were organizational clarity and efficient flow, with thought given to how patients, physicians, and nurses would interact with the space. 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. The clinic includes: 24 exam spaces, 6 physician offices, 2 procedure rooms, and a cardiology suite.
The project makes use of abundant daylighting and simple materials to provide a design that is thoughtful and not overdone. The outcome was a beautiful and highly functional building that was cost effective.
