CHI Franciscan (an Advertiser) will be doing a soft opening of their brand new Medical Pavilion – Highline, a 48,000 square foot, $27 million facility on Monday, April 25.

The newly-constructed building is just south of CVS, near the corner of 1st Ave South and SW 160th Streets, where a thrift store and school district office building were once located.

The Franciscan Medical Pavilion – Highline is designed as a patient destination center that offers maximum comfort. The pavilion will create a serene environment by separating patients from busy staff areas. Features include an indoor-outdoor fireplace and extensive windows to take advantage of both natural lighting and the views of a greenbelt that flanks the property.

The building was designed utilizing a “lean” process used by the Mayo Clinic and other health care leaders to increase efficiency and reduce the time spent on non-patient-related activities. A team of 30 CHI Franciscan staff, physicians and leaders were involved in the design of the building and of common work tasks to ensure doctors and staff will have more quality time with patients.

ZGF Architects of Seattle guided the design process and GLY Construction of Bellevue is serving at the project’s general contractor.
