Fitting In Three New Clinics in Oklahoma Feature Modular Prototype CallisonRTKL recently completed three new Warren Clinics, a division of the Saint Francis Health System, in the Tulsa, Oklahoma region. Each clinic, South Memorial (built by Cowen Construction), Tulsa Hills (built by Rupe Building Company) and North Broken Arrow (built by Ross Group), provides urgent care, radiology, lab and clinical functions, primary care and specialty services. The clinics are a branded, modular health prototype, which can adapt in various configurations to multiple sites. Each clinic features an on-stage, off-stage method, allowing patients to go directly to the room where they will be seen instead of spending time in a waiting room with other patients. This method provides more privacy and improves overall patient experience satisfaction. The organization's brand is reinforced by incorporating the color pink, a dominant feature of other Saint Francis facilities, through exterior glass walls infused with pink tones. A "Light from Above" concept was also incorporated using natural light as a primary driver within the design and providing direct access to exterior views.
