The new FSU Primary Health Center, located off-campus in an under-served community of southwest Tallahassee, will provide a wide range of primary care services. Addressing primary care needs as well as mental and behavioral health, the clinic will be served by certified physicians and FSU College of Medicine faculty along with a rotation of medical students. With Sabal Palm Elementary School only one block away, the new facility will also be a welcome benefit to those parents and children.
The 10,000 square foot building, organized on one level for easy accessibility, includes seventeen patient rooms, two procedure rooms, and two separate rooms for conferences and community activities. The large community room will offer local residents a much needed place for health-based seminars and enrichment programs while becoming a vibrant place for all members of the medical team to be fully engaged in its outreach with the community.
Using a neutral color palette, the exterior architecture is distinguished by the rhythm of gray-striped vertical banding that expresses the functions of the interior program. The contrasting corners, accentuated with white walls and large view windows, add to a composition of elements that creates a building that better harmonizes with the existing neighborhood.
The new Primary Health Center will provide a long-awaited facility to meet the growing demand for accessible healthcare in this community, as well as provide continued growth and advancement of the FSU College of Medicine’s mission focused on patient-centered care.
