In November of 2009, Health Services, Inc. received a $12 million grant to fund the construction of the River Region Health Center (RRHC) in Montgomery, Alabama. The RRHC consists of a two-story, 50,000 S.F. medical office building that sits on approximately 3 acres at the Jackson Hospital Campus and functions as a primary care center for the un-insured and the under-insured citizens of the River Region. This “high-end”, LEED Certified building, consisted of the development of a new facility to house highly-trained professionals that will be providing several distinctive health related services to the public: a Pharmacy, Information Services, Administration, Radiology, Laboratory, WIC, Social Services, Dental Services, Podiatry, Pediatrics, OBGYN, and Adult Medicine. The medical staff at RRHC has the capacity to treat nearly 26,000 patients a year and handle 80,000 medical and dental visits annually. Some of the key aspects of the design of the RRHC are the two story glass lobby that runs the entire length of the front of the building, which allows a maximum amount of light into the facility, working around the huge Oaks in the Civil and Landscaping Designs by modifying the sidewalks, parking area and roadways to incorporate these trees, as well as an underground rain harvest water recovery system. In addition, fuel efficient vehicle parking was incorporated into the parking lot; a high efficient HVAC design and innovative water efficient plumbing fixtures were incorporated into the building.
