Neighborcare Health opened its new $22.5 million Meridian Center for Health, which is expected to serve 14,000 people seeking medical, dental and behavioral health care. The 45,000-square-foot center was built less than 20 feet from the old clinic, creating challenges for construction, deliveries and staging.

The steel-and-concrete building was constructed with an enclosure of masonry, rusting steel, metal panels and cedar siding.

The building includes an indoor “healing wall” that consists of salvaged wood strips assembled to make up a feature wall accented by stone columns. The masonry veneer included a unique ashlar pattern blended on site incorporating 50 percent raw, sand-blasted smooth and ground-face CMU in 12-by-24 and 16-by-24 sizes, providing a unique visual aesthetic.
