The New Diversity Health Center
Mission and Purpose: The Corporation's primary mission is to provide primary, preventative and mental healthcare services to the residents of its service area and to provide and maintain the necessary facilities, equipment and personnel required to ensure affordable, accessible and comprehensive healthcare to the residents of its service area, with a particular focus on the uninsured and underserved residents.
Diversity Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) located in Hinesville, Georgia. This new facility replaces their existing building, which was undersized and in need of modernization.
The building is one story with a mechanical mezzanine and covered entry canopy. Thorough programming with the users resulted in a design which allows for future clinical growth by sizing administration uses and adjacencies to serve as examination spaces and provider/nurse stations when needs increase. There are no traditional offices for providers/physicians, instead these personnel are seated with nurses at open stations.
The site is 4.3 acres and was master planned to allow for future expansion and continued operation of existing facilities which are located on the corner of the site.
