2021 CDA Best New Development or Renovation–Health Care: Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hillsboro Clinic

Designers tout the adaptability and flexibility of Gundersen Health System’s new 65,000-square-foot, critical-access hospital, and that’s no minor point as health care strives to be both cost efficient and care effective.

However, our CDA judges most appreciate the way the design of Gundersen St. Joseph’s Hillsboro Clinic stayed true to a recent trend of deinstitutionalizing hospitals and clinics by making them less intimidating and more inviting. So, while each room is designed to maximize every square inch of space and every space can adapt to change, the patient experience also is served by oversized southern exposed windows that allow in ample natural daylight and permit serene views of Field Veterans Memorial Lake.
