Project Description

Cook Medical
Center

By investing in its facilities, Tift Regional Health System is combating common challenges in rural healthcare. In Adel, Georgia, Cook Medical Center implements a bold new rural healthcare delivery model combining outpatient services and fundamental hospital functions, all intent on quality patient experiences. Through the hospital, nursing home and medical office building, Cook’s expert team provides top-of-the-line individualized care. Through our design, the facility welcomes patients with a sense of hospitality and comfort.

Our collaboration created a unique design which shifts the standard stale, clinical ordeals into boutique-style experiences. Cook’s exterior had to make an impactful first impression, as it faces a major interstate. So, we created an inviting design that blends contemporary and rustic architecture, with a warm aesthetic following through to the interior. By using natural wood tones, stacked stone, and calm, soothing colors, our design feels akin to a retreat rather than a healthcare visit.

Because staff and family are important care partners, our design considers their comfort and safety so they can focus on providing effective support. Some of the most exciting spaces on campus are the inclusive zones promoting wellness, such as the outdoor porches and gardens, the chapel, retail dining space and the main lobby. The overall design concept provides a basis for Cook to promote comfort and stability, which then allows them to deliver acute care to patients and inspire wellness and preventative treatment in the community.
