Bryan Health Merrick Medical Center Refreshes Its Critical Access Hospital

Kahler Slater’s design for Merrick Medical Center was recently featured in Healthcare Design Magazine. The new facility was designed to provide a one-stop shop for services, focusing on enhancing wellness and offering comprehensive health care for its underserved community. The article shares details on how our team planned the facility to support a radically flexible design, with every part of the facility optimized for varying levels of acuity, pandemic planning, and surge days using standardization, hybridization, and a move towards non-proprietary spaces.

“The building design and internal flow have helped alleviate patient anxiety and improve the patient experience. Now the building matches the care we can provide, and there’s a sense of community pride that comes with it.”
-Patrick Avila, President/CEO Merrick Medical Center
