The Lennar Foundation Medical Center, operated by UHealth, University of Miami Health System, is a 209,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center and multidisciplinary clinic for students, employees, and residents of Coral Gables, Fla.

Ambulatory design

The facility, designed by Perkins+Will (Atlanta), opened in December 2017.

The ambulatory center includes 110 multidisciplinary exam rooms for various specialties, six ambulatory operating rooms, two interventional procedure rooms, a three-room endoscopy suite, chemotherapy treatment unit, radiation oncology, and an imaging and diagnostic center.

The university required that the design of the clinic reinforce the notion of public health and wellness in multiple aspects.

Strategies included exterior public amenities, calming interior spaces, sustainable finishes, and strong connections to the University of Miami campus and community.
