Occupational Health provides adult internal medicine services to New York Presbyterian Hospital employees. The need for expansion of services resulted in the relocation of the facility to a vacant basement space, approximately 4,100 square feet in area. The interior was completely demolished and a new suite comprising waiting and registration areas, one fast-track room, nine exam rooms, testing and diagnosing for physical disabilities, clinical support spaces, administrative offices and support spaces was constructed.
Rich materials including birdseye maple veneers and wood pattern sheet flooring create a bright, welcoming space. Given the basement location, the lack of natural daylight was alleviated by creative use of indirect downlighting. Clerestory glazing at corridor walls allow exam rooms to feel more open at ceiling level while maintaining patient privacy at eye level.
