The Midvalley Health Center provides patients with quality treatment, designed with efficiency and patient accessibility in mind. The first and second floors of the five-story hospital are dedicated to the Moran Eye Center, a branch devoted to glaucoma, cornea and ophthalmology needs as part of its vision and skin care outpatient services. The division is strategically designed to help the hospital’s visually-impaired patients.
The Department of Dermatology is the largest of its kind in the region with 50 examining rooms comprising both the third and fourth floors. Treating every aspect associated with skin care from melanoma, skin cancer, psoriasis and more, the industry-leading Department of Dermatology also features clinical trials on site. The building also houses the University’s Internal Medicine practice.
The Midvalley Health Center needed a sophisticated exterior to match the innovative healthcare it provides as the University of Utah’s state-of-the-art clinic. Architects chose CENTRIA’s single-skin Concept Series concealed fastener panels to create an attractive façade for the 83,000 square-foot facility.
Concept Series single-skin metal panels feature concealed fasteners and a common-lock joint. This feature allows panels to be combined in unique ways to create customized wall reliefs for a wide variety of projects, with thousands of combinations of articulation, shadows and sight lines. MicroSeam Corners use cutting-edge structural bonding techniques to produce corners that appear virtually seamless.
Concept Series panels are available in unlimited color options to fit any design vision. In the case of the Midvalley Health Center, the facility opted for a consistent Slate Gray aesthetic that provided a soothing feeling as patients walk through its doors.
The various panel reliefs offer a distinct texture to the facility’s exterior, while also maintaining cost effectiveness. Contractors are able to fast-track installation in all weather conditions as the panels can be installed throughout the year.
