Texas Children’s Pediatric Associates challenged Courtney Harper & Partners to assist in designing a prototypical pediatric clinic that could be consistently implemented throughout their suburban clinic locations. Texas Children’s also requested that prototype be applied retroactively to existing clinics as a bridge between the new and existing concepts.
The resulting design responds to the changing needs of patients and families and to the shifts in market trends for convenient health care. A dedicated Flex Care room enables Texas Children’s Pediatric Associates to welcome walk-ins and same-day patients as readily as scheduled patients.
The waiting area is zoned for both active and quiet wait. Active wait includes an interactive wall element and a play pit for younger patients. Quiet wait includes Internet work stations for older patients and a semi-private room for infants.
Themed wayfinding directs patient traffic to one of four treatment pods each with a sub-waiting “porch.” The color palette is fresh, child-friendly, and modern. Each exam room includes a custom designed multi-functional exam table and in-room consultation area with computer station.
In tandem with this project, Courtney Harper & Partners has successfully provided consultant services to 20 Texas Children’s Pediatric Associates clinics in the Houston area.
