The newest of Spectrum Health’s 225 outpatient care centers, the Ada Village structure hosts such specialties as family and internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, outpatient rehabilitation, occupational and physical therapy. Laboratory and diagnostic radiology facilities provide one-stop services. “Hospital-grade” requirements were incorporated into the scope of structural, mechanical and electrical engineering design. Creating a warm and welcoming family care atmosphere guided the lighting design.
Developing a new primary health care facility was a key aspect of the “Envision Ada” project, a $13 million public-private partnership investment to establish a viable “village” atmosphere in the town center. The Amway Corporation World Headquarters situated across Fulton Street, M21, is co-funding the project.
“Envision Ada” engaged townspeople and local business to re-energize commercial and retail opportunities, while maintaining a pedestrian-friendly village appeal. Building design requirements seek to preserve the quaint, small-scale feel of the village concept, which Classic Engineering factored into its work on the health care facility.
Spectrum Health is a 14-hospital system and the largest employer in West Michigan with more than 30,000 staff and 4,300 physicians.
