The 24,000square-foot building set to open this summer is being constructed by Huron Regional Medical Center to accommodate new and future physicians. The new clinic is being designed to house up to 10 HRMC physicians specializing in orthopaedics, general surgery, family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics. The clinic is designed with the patient in mind. Inside the main entrance facing west toward Oregon Avenue (above photo), patients will be greeted by a central reception area where they register at one of the private registration booths (photo below) located on either side of the reception desk. Patients will then be directed to one of five large waiting areas, which can accommodate more than 120 patients and family members.
