What Do Architecture Fans and the NCMS Have in Common?

exterior2Answer: An affinity for modernist office buildings!

Join the NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine Capital Campaign to save a piece of architectural history and improve your association’s ability to meet your needs.

The NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine was designed by architect Milton Small, who also designed the former Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic building that was cited in The New York Times for its “taste and good design” in a 1965 review of small office buildings around the country. Small also designed Carter Finley Stadium, NC State University’s bookstore and WRAL Studios.  Today, a local Raleigh group is working to save the former Raleigh Orthopaedic structure from demolition, citing that modernist office buildings are “disappearing at a pretty fast rate” and “buildings are at their greatest risk when they’re 50 to 60 years old.”

Members should have received a letter from NCMS President Dev Sangvai, MD personally asking you to contribute to our redesign efforts so that we can make the building, located in downtown Raleigh at the center of legislative and regulatory decision making, more suitable and functional for meetings and to serve as a place where members can assemble for workshops, leadership training and other educational opportunities. We know that a single physician, a single association, a single health system cannot solve the tremendous challenges health care faces alone. We must work collaboratively to do what is right for the people of North Carolina and the physicians who care for them. The new NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine allows us to work more collaboratively and better serve you. Please give today! For more information contact Pam Highsmith, Director of Development, 800-722-1350, ext. 122.board-room (2)

G. Hadley Callaway, MD, NCMS Past President and his partners at Raleigh Orthopaedic have relocated to a new clinic in Raleigh. The Raleigh News & Observer wrote about the building’s history and attempts to save it from the wrecking ball. “Raleigh Architecture Fans Work to Save Glenwood Avenue Modernist Office Building.”
