SMHC Physicians and Walk-In Care (formerly UNE University Health)
A new 21,800-s.f. medical office building, shared by SMMC PrimeCare and the Veterans Administration, abuts a 3,000-s.f. Colonial Revival house. In addition to exam and procedure rooms, labs, and support spaces, PrimeCare's offices on the first floor includes conference areas and resident/intern work areas that support UNE's active teaching program. The VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic on the second floor serves southern Maine veterans with primary care, laboratory, and mental health services. By visually integrating the old house with the new building, the design strives for patient-oriented spaces without an institutional feel.
