Central Health Strategic and Facility Planning  |  Austin, Texas

Boulder Associates Architects, in collaboration with Turning Point Healthcare Advisors and Latino Healthcare Forum, provided strategic planning, community engagement, existing facility assessment, programming, and planning services to Central Health, a public agency that funds healthcare services for low income individuals. Developed alongside Central Health and the community, the vision for the facility was to serve as a clinic that would increase wellness rather than a traditional clinic that only treats illness. A significant portion of this assignment is in helping Central Health select a Patient-Centered Medical Home planning concept that will integrate into their ideal practice model. The research, engagement and, planning results will be implemented at the Southeast Health and Wellness Center and serve as the model for all future Central Health Community Health Centers.
