Lac Vieux Desert Health Center

Over the course of two months, planning meetings were held to discuss the future of the Lac Vieux Desert Health Center. DSGW Architects lead meetings that included Indian Health Service staff, tribal community members, clinic staff and providers, clinic task force members and the Tribal Council, both current and incoming.

The information developed from these meetings directed the outcome of the feasibility study results and overall clinic program and design that was used to acquire funding for a new facility.

The new Lac Vieux Desert Health Center has 12 exam rooms with two procedure rooms and a care team area, a nine-chair dental suite with lab services, retail pharmacy, imaging suite, clinical lab, chiropractic and physical therapy department, optical department with sales area and two patient exams, behavior health and family services, administrative suite and a community gathering room.
