Virginia Mason Medical Center – Bainbridge Island
Creating a connection to Virginia Mason Medical Center “across the water,” this 30,000 SF Virginia Mason brings enhanced services to Kitsap County, including primary care, imaging, and lab, plus spaces for dermatology, physical therapy, nutrition counseling, and neurosurgery consultation. This facility was designed using Virginia Mason’s 3P process for lean design and operations. As medical planners, and part of Lean Design Process, we created mock-ups for each department where team members walked through, made comments, and changes were then integrated into the design. The interior space was designed to provide a comforting environment for patients. Thirty-one exam rooms all have separate entrances for team members and patients, keeping operations removed from the patient experience. Abundant natural light adds to the inviting atmosphere.
