A tall, imposing concrete and glass building overlooking Central Park is the
home to one of Manhattan's finest hospitals. With the Emergency Room on the
first floor, readily accessible to ambulances and patients seeking medical care,
the first floor is also home to an urgent care clinic, information center, and
various administrative offices. The elevators lead to the other floors and
departments of the hospital, all spelled out in long lists beside the elevators.

At all hours of the day and night, nurses, doctors, and other hospital
employees wander the corridors of this institution, going to and fro
purposefully. On the fourth floor, however, the corridor from the elevators
lead towards a single door - the entrance to the Mendel Clinic.

Metropolitan Hospital - Mendel Clinic Branded across the frosted glass of the entrance-way is, in crisp, bright paint, the logo of the Mendel Clinic: the Rod of Asclepius, with a circle like the rising sun behind it. The red snake entwined up the rod looking towards the elevator on the second floor, keeping watch over its domain. Next to the frosted glass doors there is an intercom system and a small plaque, on which is written, "If you need care and the Clinic is closed, please use the intercom to the right to page the clinician on duty. The Mendel Clinic will always be open for our patients. Health care never sleeps." Inside the doors, a security desk sits on the right, with someone on duty twenty four hours a day, even when the clinic isn't open. Directly in front of the doors lies the intake desk, a long, rounded desk with receptionists during business hours. Along the left wall is a row of cubicles for financial consultation, and along the right wall is the pharmacy. In the middle, past intake, there are a few rows of comfortable chairs and couches for patients to sit in while they wait. Two big screen televisions hang in the corners of the room, and the standard tables of magazines are scattered through the waiting area. Beyond swinging double doors with lightly frosted glass windows lies the rest of the Mendel Clinic. Exam rooms first, lined up next to the doctor's offices who they belong to. Specialized rooms are next, bearing names on plaques such as 'Nuclear Imaging' and 'Phlebotomy'. Past them are the administrative offices, then the restricted areas: the laboratory, medical storage, nurses station, and various other offices and rooms closed to the public. mc
Mendel Clinic - Examination Room The examination room is simple but functional and beautiful. The style of the main rooms continues seamlessly even into this room, a comfortable atmosphere infusing into every possible object. Along the left wall is an examination bench, crinkly paper cover roll tucked beneath and inside it. Hanging on the wall above the bench are various instruments, all easily accessible. Along the back right wall is a sink and cabinet, with a red sharps container hanging next to it. A scale is next to that, height attachment built directly into the wall instead of into the scale itself. In the back left corner there is a small desk and rolling stool, with a monitor and keyboard sitting on the desk. The monitor is kept asleep unless needed, but when the keyboard or mouse are touched, the logo of the Mendel Clinic pops up with a username and password box. Above the monitor is a enigmatic looking unmarked black box mounted on the wall, with a few cameras and a few light globes attached along the front in a triangular formation. mc, er
Mendel Clinic - Laboratory The laboratory is the exception to the look of The Mendel Clinic. The lighting is florescent; there are no windows on the doors. The desks are not wood but industrial stone, treated to be resistant to impact, flame, and chemicals. The room is lined with rolling stools, and three hoods line the walls. Test tubes are everywhere, some drying above sinks at the end of each lab table. A sunken area in the center of the table that slants towards the sink allows for quick disposal of non-hazardous chemicals. Emergency eye washes and emergency showers are placed on both sides of the room, and various instruments are scattered across the tables. All in all, a chaotic scene for those not used to working in a lab. mc, la
Mendel Clinic - Office Large, green beanbag chairs. That is the first thing one sees when entering Doctor Saavedro's office, which might seem out of place with the plaque on his desk that says: Doctor Iolaus Saavedro, MD, Ph.D, Dean of Medicine. The contrast of the alphabet soup and title after his name with the casual atmosphere created by the beanbags is quite stark. All in all, the room is far from large - in fact, it looks suspiciously like a closet that some sadist of a designer had decided to make into an office - but it is comfortable nevertheless… as long as no more than three people occupy it at the same time. A computer and a phone is on his desk, and the bookshelves are packed with various medical treaties. A complicated filing system of wire mesh stands are piled high with papers, though some papers are usually spread across his desk. Post-it notes line the desk, filled with scribbled handwriting. mc, o
