Family Health Center (FHC) is a federally qualified health center designated by the government to provide care to underserved populations in Kalamazoo County. The 3-story, clinic was designed to complement their existing clinic on the north side of town. The contemporary family medical and dental clinic utilizes sophisticated materials, warm colors, and abundant natural light to create a friendly, caring, and respectful healing environment.
In addition to the dental clinic and exam areas, the facility houses occupational and physical therapy spaces on the lower level along with administrative offices, staff locker rooms and lounge, and multipurpose conference room. The first floor is home to the 25-seat dental clinic which includes a modern reception area, a pharmacy, and a future dental lab. The waiting areas at the north and south ends of the building provide views of the surrounding area and include a three-story atrium with geometric lighting and ample, contemporary seating. The second floor is home to a family health clinic with contemporary waiting areas that overlook the atrium on the first floor and provides a variety of modern seating options for patients and caregivers.
