Two Healthcare Projects Selected for Recognition

 

The Baystate Children’s Specialty Center and the Mattapan Community Health Center have both been chosen by the Boston Society of Architect’s (BSA) 2014 Healthcare Facilities Design Awards Jury for recognition. Award winners will find out which level of award each project has received at the BSA’s annual awards gala in January. There are three levels of awards: Honor level, Award level, and Citation level.

The Mattapan Community Health Center is a new 50,000 square foot, ground-up construction, community health center located in the heart of Mattapan Square and will help lead the revitalization of the area. The 3-story center is seeking LEED Silver certification and includes several sustainable features, including a green roof. The design also maximizes natural light by keeping the central area of each floor open, so that light can pass from one end of the central transparent volume to the other.

Mattapan Community Health Center (MCHC) is a federally qualified independent health center affiliated with Boston Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital/ Partners Healthcare.

The ground floor of the center features the health center entrance, which is flanked by two retail spaces, a conference area, and an open stair between ground and first floors.

The first floor has dental services, lab space, WIC, building services, community function space and waiting rooms.

The second floor is occupied by clinical exam rooms, behavioral health, social services and additional waiting areas.

The Baystate Children’s Specialty Center was not simply engineered—it was “imagineered.” The design process kicked off with a charrette with former Disney Imagineers, which resulted in a whimsical and high-tech child-centered, interactive experience attractive to both young patients and older adolescents.

The design goal was to alleviate the sometimes negative connotations associated with visiting the doctor for families and patients by providing them with a fun and interactive environment. The project also had to conveniently organize all 15 of the pediatric specialties under one roof and put patients and families at the center of well-coordinated care. You can learn more about the Children’s Specialty Center by reading this blog post from April.

The Children’s Specialty Center is filled with joyful diversions, such as the interactive fish pond, to distract from what could potentially be a stressful experience.
