The City of Conroe has seen a dramatic increase in its population as the Woodlands area of Greater Houston expanded. The Lonestar Family Health team wanted to serve this growing population, and so the team built a new primary hub in the Conroe area designed to accommodate their increased patient load and engage with a larger portion of the Conroe community. The Lonestar Family Health Center, a distinctive, modern medical home model healthcare facility, provided quality, patient-centered care, clear wayfinding and amenities for a broad spectrum of Conroe residents. Though the new clinic space was fairly large, a pod-based design created an intimate feel for patients and enabled coordinated, quality care. The clinic’s entrance featured a large, inviting atrium with natural sun light that guided patients to a single check-in space. From the check-in, patients traveled to one of the five practice area pods. Each pod featured a fifteen person waiting room that created the feel of a smaller, private care doctor’s office. The pods’ were located in close proximity to one another. Patients who needed to see more than one doctor that day had a simple journey to another part of the Health Center. Interconnected staff space between pods allowed Lonestar physicians to quickly conference and provide coordinated personalized care. This sort of convenient, patient-friendly design was also incorporated into the buildings’ community-oriented service offerings as well.
Life is precious.
To help people during the most stressful times of their lives is the most important job we can imagine. It’s why we do what we do. We are dedicated to improving health outcomes through better healthcare design. To us, that’s not just a job — it’s a calling.
The complex challenges of modern healthcare demand that places lean into the future. Design is the physical expression of intellectual rigor in the service of empathy. Every design decision must maximize performance, minimize risk, and enhance the experience of the caregiver, patient, and family. We are eager collaborators, who respect expertise and listen deeply to multiple viewpoints — there is no place for our own egos. We are driven to satisfy every client on their own terms. We are dedicated to finding new, better ways to promote healing, comfort, and hope.
Doing so, we have made an impact in the lives of over eight million patients. From major metropolitan AMCs to small suburban clinics, from obstetrics to hospice, Corgan creates elegant, forward-looking spaces that improve outcomes, deftly respond to periodic change, and elevate the experience of the user. Our people genuinely care about the lives of your people.
That, to us, is the most precious thing we can offer.
