Darboy Clinic Earns Recognition for Design
DARBOY — ThedaCare Physicians-Darboy has been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council for its building design.
The clinic, built by the Boldt Co. in Appleton received LEED gold designation for its environmentally friendly features. McMahon Inc. of Neenah was the project’s architect and engineer.
Opened in March 2010, the single-story, 26,000-square-foot facility serves pediatric, family practice and physical therapy patients. The clinic also offers x-ray, mammography and an onsite lab.
“Our entire staff is excited about this honor,” said practice supervisor Tara Lebeck. “The environment created here, such as our 10 skylights that bring in natural light, has inspired our staff to be even more sustainable.”
Environmentally friendly features include skylights and floor-to-ceiling insulated wall systems that ensure a quiet and private environment for providers and patients, Lebeck said.
ThedaCare Physicians-Darboy is the second of the health care system’s buildings to receive LEED certification. Encircle Health, a partnership with ThedaCare, received a gold designation in September.
