Interim STHC Director
Spokane Teaching Health Clinic
The Clinic was designed around collaboration in learning. Residents, faculty and other healthcare professionals share an expansive open concept precepting space with natural light from a wall of windows. A core feature requested by the residents during the design phase was to have line of sight vision to the faculty attendings and other professionals (pharmacy and social work to name a few) to facilitate timely precepting and information gathering. A preceptor space in the room’s center allows for easy access and promotes collaborative conversations and team work.
Patient care has been expanded using a spacious design which includes 56 exam rooms, 3 procedure suites and 6 counseling offices. The lobby is open concept, full of light with high ceilings and includes a café for caregivers and patients. A laboratory and X-ray unit are located on site for patient and physician convenience. A PT and OT gym (complete with OT apartment) is located on the second floor for patient use. The gym serves as a site of instruction for PT and OT students.
On the second floor there is a large conference room with technologies that enable connection to off-site locations as well as administrative offices for the residencies.
