MENASHA, Wis. – Affinity Medical Group has opened state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly clinics in Brillion and Darboy.
The new, 3,500-square-foot clinics incorporate environmentally friendly sustainable concepts through the U.S. Green Building Council, and were designed with patient convenience in mind. Traffic flow was designed so that patients will move from the waiting area to the examination rooms and the diagnostic area without backtracking or feeling as though they have entered a maze. Both clinics feature a full-service lab and X-ray area.
The clinics follow an award-winning design for other Affinity clinics that have opened within the last year. The clinics include a glass wall in the lobby area. Natural light, along with plants and soft music, help to create a soothing atmosphere for visitors.
The Brillion clinic is located at 708 W. Ryan St., and the Darboy clinic is located at N9642 County Road N.
