Our team provided an initial 90,000+ SF Master Plan of the Ambulatory Clinic on the Southern Arizona VA Health Care System Campus; this led to the plan for four (4) expansions totaling 45,000 SF. These addition and renovation projects include primary and specialty clinical services such as Cardiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hematology/Oncology, Pulmonary, Renal, Rheumatology and a Women’s Clinic.
Phase I of this project comprised of a 5,120 SF renovation (Area B) to the existing Building 80 and a two-story clinic expansion (Area A). The two-story expansion included an 11,355 SF interior build-out of the second floor and a shell-out space for the first floor that included a 1,015 SF interior build-out to create utility entrances and vertical circulation for second floor access. The complete build-out of this first-floor addition was also designed by Spur Design as Phase II of this project and is currently under construction.
The clinics were designed to incorporate the PACT (Patient-Aligned Care Team) principles. These principles are based upon the patient centered medical home model of care which has been embraced by the VA on a national level. With patient education being the primary focus, it was important to incorporate flexible spaces and conference areas while also striving to maintain patient privacy.
