The Bethesda Primary Care Wellness Centre celebrated its grand opening in Steinbach, Manitoba late last week. Representatives from the Bethesda Foundation, Southern Health-Sante Sud, Steinbach family Medical, the Province of Manitoba, Steinbach Primary Care Pharmacy, and Dynacare gathered together with Steinbach City Council, and members of the public to mark the occasion with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
MMP Architects collaboratively designed the 29,447sf building that houses a wide variety of disciplines. This “Access Centre” model, also used throughout Winnipeg, will allow residents of the South Eastman region to experience a one stop shop for primary health services.
The interior space was designed to allow individuality between the various tenants while still providing a cohesive overall appearance. A clean palette of neutral tones is featured throughout common areas, whereas the tenant spaces feature the addition of woodgrains, soft surfaces, and pops of colour allow a sense of individuality. The use of Tyndall stone from Gillis Quarries allowed the project to feature a material native to Manitoba, an important client item requested from project outset.
MMP is proud to have been a part of providing such an exciting and vital service for the City of Steinbach and surrounding community.
