Community Healthcare Network

Collaborating with Dattner Architects, Talisen brought Community Healthcare Network’s new Lower East Side health center location to life. Community Healthcare Network is a not-for-profit organization that provides more than 80,000 New Yorkers with primary and behavioral healthcare. The organization started in the 1980s and has been expanding it’s services since, with 13 locations throughout New York City.

The Lower East Side location featured an updated façade and entryway, reception area, patient rooms, and administrative areas. The entry and reception area received a new slatted ceiling, a multi-person desk, and frosted glass partitions. Working from a full-gut demolition, the reception area was created to offer separation of space from the care rooms. Lockers were installed for personal safekeeping, as well as a staff lounge and restroom. The patient areas included eight exam rooms and a conference room.

Talisen was honored to complete the demolition and build out of this space in line with our mission of collaborating with the local community to make New York a better place to be. We salute the members of Community Healthcare Network and the good work they do for New Yorkers. A wonderful and meaningful addition to our repertoire of healthcare projects.
