Two of our current projects are defining new models for delivering health care to under-served populations in Harris County, Texas. Both involve creating new access to health services through neighborhood ‘portals’ – places where communities gather already. Introducing health services into a community gathering place brings lots of change: new service providers, new ‘customers’, sharing of places and resources. Changes like this can be challenging to a community.
We are working with two great clients who understand these challenges. In each project, we’re bringing together all of the stakeholders for a one-day “DesignLab” to DISCOVER, DREAM, DESIGN and develop shared vision and design goals…. Residents, Community Members, Health Services Providers, Administrators, Social Services Providers, Architects and Engineers.
We’ll share the results here, so stay tuned!
