The Firehouse Clinic is an initiative to break down the practical barriers to obtaining health care by locating clinics at trusted sites near where residents live – in local fire stations. [+] MendeDesign was engaged to develop the visual brand, environmental signage, and the launch presentation.[+]
The concept was proposed by Alameda County Public Health. The conceptual design was a collaboration between Public Architecture, WRNSStudio, GLS Landscape Architecture, and MendeDesign. The initiative is expected to reduce county emergency room overload by 35%. The first clinic is scheduled to open in Alameda in the fall of 2015.
