Prioritizing Community Health During COVID-19

O’Connell Robertson’s mission-driven approach and commitment to making an impact in our communities start and end with people. Now more than ever, people are being served by community health centers filling an essential need for access to medical care, health, and wellness resources. Neighborhood availability to these services is especially important for to low-income, uninsured, or under-insured patients during the pandemic.

With a long history of providing design and engineering for clinics, hospitals, and wellness centers, we are proud to work with our communities to bring personal care to communities across Texas. The Central Health Southeast Health & Wellness Center (SEHWC) in Austin is one such recent project. Along with community resources and wellness programs, SEHWC offers a full range of healthcare services. These services include immunizations, primary and specialty care, women’s health services, dental, behavioral health services, pharmacy, lab, and radiology for one-stop patient convenience. SEHWC, in partnership with CommUnityCare, assists patients with coronavirus-like symptoms.

“Our work on the Southeast Health and Wellness Center is typical of so many projects we work on. It is a collaboration with healthcare administrators, doctors, nurses, and local community leaders to provide a tailored design solution for each community.” – Ted Davison, HFDP LEED AP, Principal
