Community Medical Clinic
Funded by a 2016 Texas Community Development Block Grant (TxCDBG) and administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA), the City of Kosse hired KSA to design a 2,500 square foot medical clinic. We were hired largely because of our unique understanding of the TDA grant process, our experience with similar facilities, and our dynamic project approach. We have been involved with the project since the initial grant writing process and helped to secure the funding.
To serve the residents of this rural community, the City of Kosse partnered with a local hospital to provide a branch of its medical services to Kosse. The facility will include four exam/minor procedure rooms, a nurse station, break room, staff offices, a comfortable waiting area, and a covered drop-off canopy.
With a “patient first” approach, KSA considered the patient in each aspect of the design. From the entry sequence to the waiting room, as well as the scale and privacy of the exam rooms, KSA kept the patient top-of-mind. Much of a patient’s experience is intertwined with the morale of the staff, so KSA designed functional, efficient spaces that will facilitate a pleasant working environment.
KSA met the needs of both healthcare professionals and their patients, while also working within a fixed grant budget. We performed cost/benefit analysis for various design aspects to strike the perfect balance between a state-of-the-art facility and its economy. KSA is fully invested in the outcome of this great project concept. We are excited to help bring quality healthcare to an under-served area.
