Neighboring Concepts provided design and construction administration services for two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinics which offer quality healthcare services in two historically underserved neighborhoods in Charlotte. Our firm was selected for this effort due to our mission to improve the quality of life for residents and businesses in socially and physically challenged urban neighborhoods. We are recognized for providing inclusive community engagement services to ensure all stakeholders have ownership in developing and implementing sustainable solutions through quality partnerships and collaborations. Novant’s intent with these two clinics was to provide quality health services in underserved communities where these services are needed the most. These clinics are located in two urban neighborhoods very close to uptown’s growing skyline, north and west of the Center City. The Freedom Drive Clinic was the first to open of the two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinics. The design team, working with Novant Health, the Michael Jordan Family Foundation, and neighborhood residents designed two modern healthcare facilities that respect and honor the history and culture of these communities. The buildings were designed to be inviting, vibrant and sensitive to each community while providing natural light throughout, including within the individual patient rooms without sacrificing privacy. The buildings were also designed to maximize efficiency for nurse and administrative staff, provide a quality work environment while also providing much needed community health services.
