Minneapolis Healthcare Facility Looks Like an Apple Store
May 13, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
The University of Minnesota Health Clinics and Surgery Center in Minneapolis was designed to be more experience than ambulatory site, according to an article on the Stat website.
Inspired by an Apple store, the clinic has no lines and no intake desks. Visitors find concierges at the door and a wide-open floor plan with walls of glass.
The five-story, 342,000-square-foot building houses an inpatient surgical center and several adult clinics, and can serve more than 2,000 patients per day.
Nobody at the center gets an office. Research has shown private doctors’ offices sit empty 90 percent of the time.
