Sports Performance Center

Client: New England Baptist Hospital
Completed: 2018


New England Baptist Hospital (NEBH) is the leading regional provider for orthopedic surgery and the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases and disorders. With multiple locations throughout Massachusetts NEBH offers world-class orthopedic care both in and out of Boston.  Their Outpatient Care Center in Dedham MA focuses on sports medicine and orthopedic surgery, offering patients a complete experience where all of their outpatient surgical, pain management and rehabilitative needs can be met in one place.  The new Sports Performance Center is devoted to getting athletes back in the game, improving performance, and reducing the risk of injury by using cutting edge techniques and equipment.

The main objective for the Sports Performance Center was to create a state-of-the-art rehabilitation and prevention center that would allow both patients and clients to receive exceptional care in an exceptional environment.  

The design concept for the Sports Performance Center was to create a space that reflects New England Baptist’s “Expertise in Motion”.  As each zone has different uses, the different spaces reflect that type of motion, creating a stimulating environment that inspires both patients and clients.  The reception area is where the inspiration begins. The track lines and glass wall allow for new clients to immediately be pulled into the motion taking place in the gym. Some of the additional solutions for this concept included using both colorful, linear baffles and 60’ indoor running track that created a space for fast motion. The strengthening gym sits grounded in the center of the space with a wood acoustical cloud squarely overhead. The Physical Therapy tables are located in a serene area with soft overhead lighting and a lowered ceiling that wraps behind the clients.
