The Austin Family Health Center is a two-story, ground-up medical office building that serves as the headquarters for PCC Wellness. This new facility contains administrative offices, conference rooms, educational classrooms, 15 medical and dental examination rooms, a pharmacy, outpatient procedure rooms, and laboratories. This facility also serves as the telecommunications and data backbone for the entire PCC network. Highlights include a curtain wall glazing system at the entrance and a diamond-polished concrete floors throughout.

The building is LEED Gold certified and utilizes a geothermal mechanical system to provide heat and air conditioning to the facility. In addition to the green roof, a small wetland constructed in the center of the parking lot provides further stormwater control. All landscaping features are drought-tolerant native plants that require no irrigation. The building is completely barrier-free to both patients and employees alike.

Madison Construction worked with the owner and architect to value engineer the project in order to provide a more economical, cost-effective, and usable facility.

PCC Wellness is a not-for-profit health center that provides high quality, accessible, and affordable primary health care and dental care, preventive education supportive services, and local medical laboratory services to the community.
