Vybe Urgent Care
A series of new walk-in community-based urgent care centers are now open in Philadelphia. Brawer & Hauptman has developed a prototype that reflects the client’s mission to provide superior patient experience starting with the design of the facility. The goal for the patient to “feel better as soon as you walk in” led to the design of a waiting room that feels more like a comfortable lounge than a doctor’s office, featuring soft seating, a quiet area, a children’s area, a refreshment bar, and warm welcoming colors and materials. Curved surfaces and natural light wherever possible helps ease the patient’s anxiety in what could be a stressful situation. Two Vybe sites are currently open for business with others being planned.
