Community Healthcare Network

Nestled in the heart of the city, Community Healthcare Network’s Lower East Side health center on East Houston Street is a bustling hub of activity. Working closely with Dattner Architects, Talisen brought this new space to life, creating a warm and inviting space for patients and staff alike. The center features state-of-the-art medical equipment and facilities, making it a top choice for healthcare in New York City.

The Build

When Talisen was given the plans for the new medical center, we could see that the architects had put a lot of thought into the layout and design. They wanted to create a space that was both functional and inviting, and they knew that we would be the perfect team to bring their vision to life. We started with a full gut demolition, which allowed us to create the reception area from scratch. By separating the space from the care rooms, we were able to create an environment that would set the tone for the entire center. From floor to ceiling, every detail was carefully considered to create a space that would reflect the high standards of the medical center. 

The End Result

By the end of the build, the health center featured an updated façade, entryway, reception area, patient rooms, and administrative areas. The end result was a transformation that modernized the facility while still preserving its original character. 

Every element of the space was designed with the patient’s comfort and care in mind. Upon entering the facility, guests are immediately greeted by a sleek and modern reception area with a new slatted ceiling and frosted glass partitions, which create a sense of focus and privacy. The multi-person desk provides ample room for guests to check in and get comfortable, with the luxe entryway setting the tone for the rest of the office’s similar modern touches. 

The facility’s eight patient exam rooms are all state-of-the-art, outfitted with the latest in medical technology to ensure patients receive the best possible care. The conference room is similarly appointed, with comfortable seating and plenty of natural light. We installed lockers for personal safekeeping along with a staff lounge and restroom, and redesigned the administrative areas to provide a more efficient workflow for staff. Overall, the build was a huge success, and Talisen is proud to have aided the health center in being well-equipped to serve its community for years to come.
