School-Based Health Care Facility – Coos Bay, Oregon
The new 4,100 square foot clinic, located on the Marshfield High School campus, was uniquely designed to provide a measure of privacy for both students and the general public. Separate entrances and lobby space has been provided for students with the exam rooms equally divided between the public and student sections.
Medical and administrative services are situated on the first floor with the second floor designated for mechanical equipment and a server room. The lobbies and main corridors were designed with spacious clear-story and sky lighting to allow large quantities of natural lighting into the spaces as well as being equipped with day lighting sensors to reduce lighting power consumption. In addition to general office space, the clinic contains six exam rooms, a dental room, a lab and other support function spaces. The facility was also designed with provisions for a future solar collection system.
The project design and constuction cost of $1,116,000 is being funded in its entirety by a grant from the U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Department – Health Resourses and Services Administration (HRSA) through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
