The center has a two-toned brick exterior with green tinted windows and natural aluminum frames. The main floor includes patient services, including pharmacy, physical therapy, the exam room/clinic areas, laboratory and phlebotomy areas, immunology, radiology and ambulatory-care areas. The second floor contains medical records, administrative offices, insurance and accounting offices, as well as staff meeting and work areas. This floor is set back from the main level to soften the building’s scale and mass, and create distinctive areas for patient and administrative services.

The main entry opens onto the main reception desk and central waiting area. This space functions as the main circulation hub and gathering space, and as the central dispersal area from which all patient services are either visible or immediately accessible.

Skylights allow natural daylight into interior spaces, enhancing the healthful environment, especially wherever patients will be waiting or circulating through the building.
