Located in Bend, Oregon, the new St. Charles Family Care Bend South Clinic has a welcoming, modern lodge-like appearance that sets it apart from its commercial, highway-oriented surroundings. The 22,000 SF clinic provides for family medicine and specialists, with urgent care, imaging, lab services, and physical therapy. The goals for this facility included making it convenient for patients, efficient for staff, and flexible in function, maximizing daylight and mountain views, allowing for expansion, and creating a landmark.

The Clark/Kjos team created patient circulation paths that are clear, short, and direct. Doctors and medical assistants have adjacent modular workstations that give the doctors privacy and the assistants easy access to exam rooms. Team centers and waiting areas have outside windows and clerestories, with ample windows also at patient hallways and the staff lounge. Exam rooms are universal and may be used by family practice doctors or specialists, with the addition of some larger urgent care rooms for intermediate medical treatment.
