In order to expand and grow healthcare services in Ontario, Avita developed a new, easily accessible medical facility at a former retail site. The facility houses a group of multi-specialty medical providers as well as a full range of lab, imaging services (X-ray, MRI, CT, and ultrasound), and other outpatient services. Cardiology, orthopedics, sports medicine, family practice, internal medicine, vascular medicine, pain management, plastic and reconstructive surgery, ENT, and audiology are among the medical specialties planned for the initial phase of development.
Avita’s decision to expand in Ontario was fueled by the fact that Richland County is considered a healthcare professional shortage area. Avita’s Board feels that a large multi-specialty medical facility is needed in order to bring medical professionals into the Richland County market and fill this void.

Low horizontal lines of the building were paired with thin profile curtain wall glazing to present a crisp and modern edge to the care facility.
The building was designed to maximize efficiency through simple geometric volumes. The intersection of these volumes allowed for unique architectural moments to emerge.
