Main Line Health Broomall – HCD Magazine


With a goal to transform a series of separate collocated practices into a unified model that embodies the Main Line Health brand, Stantec worked collaboratively to carve out a two-story lobby flanked by multi-specialty practice space with a flexible exam module.  The resulting design concept established the light-filled lobby as the first point of arrival that supports quality patient care and an improved patient experience.

Nature provides inspiration for a layered design, guiding the vision of “Designing a pathway to wellness.” The revitalized space features a dynamic lobby reinforcing Main Line Health’s long presence in the community. Connecting the two levels is a new skylight with a monumental stair and an adjacent feature wall. We drew inspiration from strong, bright beams of light penetrating a canopy of trees, as well as warm light cascading through the undulating surfaces of a canyon.

The light-filled concourse adopts a hospitality feel to create a welcoming first stop for patients and families. The play of filtered light from above highlights points of entry that reinforce wayfinding and encourage the use of the daylit stair, connecting people and places.

Recalling the notion of a park, we sought to create a place that supports interaction while balancing privacy. Each entrance is paired with an information desk and care team partner to direct those arriving for appointments to check in at central registration. The patient-friendly facility allows patients to break out of the typical waiting room, relax while enjoying their surroundings, and focus on their wellness.
