Northside Medical Snellville In Georgia

Northside Medical Snellville in Snellville, Ga., brings outpatient care from Northside Hospital’s network of facilities and healthcare providers to the rapidly growing community of Snellville.

Part of the Grove mixed-use development, the new facility is designed as an extension of the area’s developing city center to provide a welcoming, warm environment that reflects the Northside brand as well as the surrounding community.

MOB project prioritizes hospitality design

The new two-story MOB embodies a hospitality-driven environment with local artwork, a large hotel-like lobby space, live plants, and large format porcelain tile on the two story feature wall and a texture wood wall behind the reception desk.

The architecture by Howell Rusk Dodson Architects (Atlanta) and interior design by HLGstudio (Atlanta) reflect the region’s landscape with natural colors for the exterior materials such as clay brick and muted colors on the metal accents.

The patient-centric ambulatory surgery center and women’s imaging suites located inside the Northside Medical Snellville feature comforting hues of soft blues, warm neutral tones, and woodgrain accents that evoke a hotel-like atmosphere.

The thoughtful layouts benefit patients and staff with efficient circulation for staff and a private and convenient exit path for patients after procedures.

Using branded elements in healthcare design

Both the ambulatory surgery center and the women’s imaging area are designed to blend with the hospital building’s public space design principles, ensuring a seamless Northside experience and a cohesive patient journey. Additionally, branding elements are incorporated to cater specifically to these patient populations.

For example, the waiting room of the ambulatory surgery center features dark wood and bold blues to anchor the interior space and convey a cozy and calming space.

The women’s imaging department features organic forms in the floor patterns and residential-style furniture.
