Enter the fun factory

Altru Health Systems has been giving North Dakota residents high-quality healthcare for over 100 years. When it came time to expand their performance center, it had to live up to that reputation. Their old space was too small to deliver what their clients needed. It was time for a full-solution physical, occupational, hand, speech and pediatric therapy facility. To have it all under the same roof, a new building was their only option. When a space that housed an old sporting goods store came up for lease, Altru jumped right on it. This 40,000-square-foot space was exactly what they needed.

Thanks to the sheer size of the space, all the facilities are on the first floor. It’s perfect for accessibility and patient flow.

The new space is also designed using the principals of distraction imagery. This means patients (especially kids) feel comfortable while working with their therapists. The pediatric space has a colorful design that includes a two-story play structure and zip lines. They even have climbing walls integrated right into the DIRTT walls. That’s why it’s affectionately known as “the fun factory.”
