Two Duluth health-care facilities were among eight named by a medical publication as outstanding projects completed last year.
Amberwing, the mental-health treatment center built by the Miller-Dwan Foundation, and the St. Luke’s Medical Office Building A were featured in the June 2013 edition of Minnesota Physician. The magazine’s honor roll includes new clinic and hospital construction, remodeled spaces and facility expansion throughout Minnesota.
The Amberwing Center for Youth and Family Well-Being, on Pecan Avenue just off Rice Lake Road, opened in September. It provides outpatient treatment for children and young adults with mental illness or chemical dependency.
The $6.2 million, 25,883-square-foot building was designed by John Ivey Thomas Associates with interior design by Kitchi Gammi Design.
“The facility’s central atrium and four treatment wings reflect the welcoming warmth of a north woods lodge,” the magazine wrote.
St. Luke’s Medical Office Building, 915 E. First St., was completed in August. The $25 million, 175,000-square-foot building has three levels of parking and two floors of current and future clinical space. It was designed by Erdman with DSGW Architects, design consultant.
The magazine said it was “built for the fast-changing climate of health care” and noted that the main patient waiting area and a number of patient exam rooms offer views of Lake Superior.
