Famous Architect Frank Lloyd Wright Was Ahead of His Time in Understanding “Patient Experience”

During a recent visit to Whitefish, Montana, Global Healthcare Services Co-Leader and Executive Managing Director Garth Hogan came across one of the last buildings designed by the late legend. Mr. Wright designed the Lockridge Medical Center in Whitefish in 1958 but passed away before it was completed. According to Northwest Montana Historical Society Executive Director Gil Jordan, the building was designed to feel like a comfortable home and not a doctor’s office. The 5,000-square-foot building has a large fireplace that is a focal point of the interior. Unfortunately, the building has reached it’s useful life and will be torn down to create a two-story retail and mixed office use.
