ONEIDA, N.Y. — The Dreamcatcher Plaza in Oneida, New York will soon be home to two new outpatient clinics, both designed by MorrisSwitzer~Environments for Health. Opening in early 2016, the Oneida Nation Health Services building and the Basset Oneida Health Center will provide comprehensive care to the public, as well as to Oneida Nation members, families and employees. Totaling 24,000 square feet, both projects are adaptive reuse of retail facilities, and were created to provide preventive care and convenient services in an accessible location.
The Oneida Nation will consolidate multiple healthcare services into this new space. Working closely with the Nation, the design focuses on a holistic approach, incorporating state-of-the-art medical services, education and preventive care in one location. Primary care, dental care, behavioral health and community health, as well as diabetes care and education, will be located in this facility, which is designed to incorporate the values and symbols of the Oneida Nation.
Basset Healthcare Network has over 20 community-based healthcare centers across the region. The Basset Oneida Health Center will provide primary care services to the public including family healthcare services, lab work, X-ray/imaging and radiology. The Basset facility will also support the Oneida Nation clinic with laboratory and radiology, increasing the availability of these services to the community. Designed to accommodate changes in demand, the health center will open with space for two providers but can flex up to accommodate additional providers should the need increase.
