Laurelwood Pediatrics

After more than 40 years in the same location, Laurelwood Pediatrics had outgrown their existing facilities. The employees of TRO Jung|Brannen’s Memphis office, now brg3s, designed a new standalone facility to better serve Laurelwood patients and families by providing expanded treatment and waiting areas.

The overall theme of the design emphasizes light, openness and color. Situated in the back of a Planned Unit Development, the designers created an inviting two-story glass tower that acts as a beacon to patients, and gives prominence and stature to the facility.

Mini-amphitheater seating around the waiting room television and a freshwater aquarium provides diversions for pediatric patients. The site also incorporates a playground directly in front of the building.

Large rectangular clerestory skylights above a central nurse station filter natural light throughout the exam room wing of the clinic. At Laurelwood Pediatrics, a staff of 24 employees supports five pediatricians. By locating the nursing station central to the exam rooms, business processes are situated to flow better, leading to shorter wait times and treatment times for children.
