It’s a building! The exterior of the new Pacific Northwest Audiology Hearing Center is around 80 percent complete and you can easily imagine approaching the building on a lazy summer day…even though the temperature was 35 degrees in spotty rain showers when the picture was taken. Much progress has also been made on the interior, which was painted with an earthy beige color. Windows are framed, the ceiling is going in, and wiring is just about complete. 

In the figure above, panels 1 and 2 show the building from the NNE, and Panel 3 shows the location of Pacific Northwest Audiology relative to High Lakes Health Center. Panel 4 is a schematic of the interior office spaces and panels 5 and 6 show the view from the patient reception area toward the Innovation Technology Center, where we will have interactive displays and technology educational programs for our customers.

Progress continues on a fast track, and we are still planning to move our operations during the first week of April. Check back for updates…we will have a lot more to tell and show as time draws closer to our move-in date!

Walls are mostly painted, ceilings will be added next week, and the building exterior is looking better every day. Weston Technology has a great plan for fulfilling our wired and wireless technology dreams, and cooperative weather is keeping us on course for a late March move-in date. When you consider that the Universe is more than 13.5 billion years old…a couple of months is like a very small fraction of a second!

We took our staff on a field trip to the building today, and we spent a lot of time discussing how to use the spaces in innovative new ways. We are thinking out of the box in every respect, to create the best patient journey while re-imagining the hearing care experience. We will spare no WOWs! 

In the figure above, panel 1 shows the building from the NNE, and Panel 2 shows the location of Pacific Northwest Audiology relative to High Lakes Health Center. Panel 3 shows the view from the entrance vestibule toward what will become our Innovation Technology Center (purple arrow in panel 6), panel 4 shows work on the building exterior, and panel 5 shows the view toward the Innovation Technology Center from the Reception area (green arrow in Panel 6).

Panel 7 shows the entire crew. From left to right, Dr. Li-Korotky (Chief Audiologist and co-owner), Josh Korotky (Vice President and co-owner), Jackie Carey (our Office Manager), Dr. Ryan O’Clair (Audiologist), Jenny Jochum (Audiologist Assistant), and Mindy Dimitri (Doctor of Audiology Fellow). We are looking to add another Audiologist, Audiologist Assistent, and Front Desk coordinator soon!

Things are happening fast, so check back for updates…we have a lot more to tell and show as time draws closer to our move-in date!
