As part of a program to expand health care accessibility, outreach and training, and working with the University of Arizona Medical Center, the first floor of the Pima County Herbert K. Abrams  Building is home to a new Family & Community Medical (FCM) Office and a Diabetes Office, totaling over 24,500 square feet.

The FCM Office contains 36 exam rooms, three Procedure rooms, a Treatment room, phone triage, Doctor’s offices and a Resident work room.  The exam rooms were designed and furnished with families’ comfort in mind.  

The Diabetes office offers “one-stop” care.  In addition to traditional diabetic care, the office provides exam rooms for cardiovascular, podiatry and ophthamalogic services commonly needed by diabetic clients so they do not need to be directed to other locations.

A theme for both clinics is preventative health services through education.  Adjacent to the Diabetes office is a new demonstration/teaching kitchen that will be utilized to teach healthier cooking and eating habits in a hands-on environment.

Both clinics also have a resident program, for the training of doctors in a community medicine environment. 

Swaim & Associates pulled together a very complicated program for both clinics and the demonstration kitchen into a unified design that is both pleasing and functional for the staff of both offices, and is comfortable for families seeking health care.

United Builders executed the construction while being careful to minimize disruptions to the existing building occupants.
