MHM's New Medical Clinics

MHM has had a busy summer designing new medical clinic space in the region. We enjoy the design challenge and consideration that each type of clinic brings tailoring the building specifically to each practice. Learn more about three of these projects below:


HVWalkInClinic_ENTRY VIEW.jpg

Affiliated with Summit Medical, this 3,000 sf clinic located on Hardin Valley Road was designed with efficiency and expansion in mind.  The forms represent the circulation and staff spaces in the larger white box, while a black box extruding along the west side houses the exam rooms.  With the use of a high-contrast material palette and simple metal planes along the entry points, the building showcases a fresh take, yet similar feel, to the existing surroundings.  Currently under construction, the building is slate to be open this fall.



Tusculum Family Physicians in Greeneville, TN is moving from a cramped tenant space to this 7,000 sf free-standing clinic. The practice sees patients of all age ranges, so the design focuses on including comforts for all patient types. Views to the outdoors and patient experience are extremely important to the clients, so windows in every space were a must. To tie into the surroundings, yet feature a more modern aesthetic, the material palette includes warm neutrals and wood-clad walls wrapping into the large waiting areas. The project design is well underway, with estimated opening date set in late 2018.
