NOVEMBER 2016

S

everal years ago,

a community needs assessment revealed
that an area of south Denver that has one of the largest populations of undocumented citizens in the city suffered from a severe lack of healthcare
resources. In response, Denver Health and Hospital Authority, Colorado's
primary safety-net institution, decided to design and plan a new family
health center that would answer that shortfall.
Architecture firm RTA Architects (Colorado Springs, Colo.) began the
design process by shadowing staff at Denver Health's Sam Sandos Westside
Family Health Center in Denver to understand its processes, since some of
the staff members were going to relocate to the new clinic. The design team
also toured three other existing Denver Health community clinics, including locations in Montbello, Park Hill, and Lowry, Colo., and held a weeklong Lean 3P event with a multidisciplinary team from Denver Health to
rapidly create and test potential designs.
The result is the Federico Peña Southwest Family Health Center and
Urgent Care, the system's largest health center to date, which opened in
April. The in-depth design process led to some specific features for the
new facility. For example, staff at the existing clinics reported that multiple rows of seating in waiting areas could cause confusion with patients
when they sat in an area that wasn't near their provider. A linear layout
was introduced at the new center that aligns seating areas with pods of
service providers, and patients are directed to their provider's specific
clinic area at check-in. Additionally, the 3P event validated the need for
an urgent care on-site, open extended hours and on weekends in conjunction with the pharmacy, becoming the first family health center in
Denver Health's system to have on-site urgent care.
With a focus on holistic care, patient education, and preventing illness,

RTA Architects incorporated
the design vocabulary of
Denver Health's other
facilities, including curved
glulam beams, brick, and
metal accents, into the new
location in south Denver. A
28-foot glazed volume with
a curved roof was strategically located to delineate
the entry points and make a
statement.
