The new Maryhill Health & Care Centre is on Gairbraid Avenue, alongside Maryhill Burgh Halls, reinforcing the city’s regeneration plan for this part of Maryhill. You can read our Press Release issued on the day the doors opened to the first patients.
Situated not far from the present Health Centre, the new centre provides the local community with a modern building able to provide healthcare in the 21st century. Construction for the £12 million project began in December 2014 and the new centre opened on 19th September 2016.
The new centre incorporate GP Practices, physiotherapy, podiatry, community dental services, district nursing, health visitors, community mental health services, youth health service and health improvement teams offering services such as smoking cessation support.
Other services may also utilise the community consulting rooms offering local access to addiction services, specialist children’s clinics and money advice.
Creating a Vibrant and Welcoming Health Centre
The innovative design of the new Health Centre delivers a modern, spacious, healthy environment with an inspiring and inviting civic space. This therapeutic environment is responsive to the needs of patient’s, staff and visitors, by creating a calm and uplifting building, able to respond and adapt to changing needs.
In addition to providing improved and modern healthcare facilities, the Health & Care Centre opens up the barracks wall surrounding the Wyndford Estate, by creating a notional and physical link to the canal network.
The internal street / atrium that runs through the heart of the building, linking Gairbraid Avenue and Kelvindale Road, encourages this journey.
The full height atria, creates views to waiting areas and reception points on level 1 which assist with way-finding in the centre. The skylights flood ‘the street’ with natural light, offering views to the sky, enhancing individual experience of the building by the positive use of space and natural light.
The building opens up and faces Maryhill Road and the local community through the projecting ‘TV screen’ to the upper two levels. Approaching the health centre from both Gairbraid Avenue and Kelvindale Road is via landscaped external plaza spaces with a mix of ramps and steps to improve access to the facility.
