Fort Wayne Pediatrics provides excellent medical treatment and support for children and their families when they are healthy and in times of illness. Striving to provide a welcoming environment to all families and patients, Fort Wayne Pediatrics partnered with MKM to renovate their facility. 

 

Fort Wayne Pediatrics has a tight knit, collaborative team of eight physicians, each with a strong practice and history of providing young patients with personalized pediatric care. The renovation of the new facility focused on creating a collaborative environment that would allow Fort Wayne Pediatrics to grow into their new space. With each physician sharing administrative and support staff, MKM prioritized a design that would reduce steps between each physician and increase staff efficiency. The design features pods with four exam rooms for each physician. The center of each pod shares a common open work area with administrative office support. This layout is repeated throughout the space for each physician, to ease adaptability for support staff working between multiple physicians.

 

The interiors aimed to create a welcoming care environment for children. Bright pops of color accompany clean lines. Bold colors assist with simple wayfinding throughout the space. Upon entering the space, families are met by a registration bay with clear glass, creating transparent service. In addition, the exterior was revived by redesigning the entrance of the space. A blue entrance canopy now greets families that makes exterior wayfinding simple.
