In July, 2009, a group of community-minded individuals heard that the Marillac Clinic needed some help in remodeling an acquired building for use by their administrative staff. Over the next several months the group began to grow and coalesce to meet some of Marillac's needs and objectives for the new office space. During this time group leaders, Amanda McQuade and Joe Wharton, obtained the services of a strong general contractor, Duke Cox of Escalante Builders and architectural consulting from Nora Martin of Chamberlin Architects. Both professionals generously provided services at no cost to the clinic.
The 602remodel project is a totally volunteer effort by many local citizens who realize the terrific benefits Marillac Clinic provides to the community, and who have been working in concert with Marillac to remodel this facility at 602 Bookcliff Avenue to house offices, training, and similar efforts for Marillac.
"We needed to transform exam rooms in this building into offices, waiting rooms into meeting/training rooms, and a small bathroom into a more modern, ADA-compliant facility. It was the objective of the 602remodel volunteer organization to complete this remodeling project start to finish, utilizing volunteer labor, volunteer supplied materials, and donated funds." said Kristy Schmidt, Director of Community and Consumer Relations. "We had a general contractor and local architect develop the plans for the remodel. The contractor is a local, dedicated company doing this project at no cost. The team also recruited other skilled professionals as these needs were identified. One of the primary uses of this expanded facility will be training – especially in the area of Electronic Medical Records, which will bring greater efficiencies to the Clinic and our patients. We are really proud to celebrate the completion of this project, and look forward to this event to recognize the incredible generosity of spirit and talent that so many put forth to support the mission of the Clinic."
