Next Design was contracted by Kaiser Permanente for the design of the Kaiser Permanente Lihue Clinic renovation. Next Design worked closely with the Kaiser team to incorporate Kaiser Permanente’s Total Health Environmental program in all aspects of design. The Total Health Environment incorporates local design features with national standards for safe, healthy, environmentally friendly places to work and receive care.
The design integrated elements of Mayor Bernard Carvalho’s Kauai Nui Kuapapa initiative through color, patterns, and textures.
The services provided at the Lihue clinic include Primary Care, Pharmacy, Lab, and Exam Rooms equipped for telehealth services. Each exam room is equipped with wide screen LCD screens, high definition cameras, and biotelemetry carts with telecare and teledermatology capabilities.
