Veteran Affairs Outpatient Clinic

Santa Rosa, CA

Santa Rosa’s VA Clinic is a lifeline for veterans in Sonoma County who rely on a carefully planned clinic that welcomes patients in a respectful manner.

COMPREHENSIVE FOR A REASON

Our challenge was to balance programmatic needs of equipment-intense spaces including dental and radiology suites that convey an environment of personalized attention. At the same time, primary care and administrative functions are accessed through the same lobby and waiting area.

WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT

An efficient layout with intuitive way finding strategies helps patients find their way to the primary care wing as well as specialized care units and social support services. A creative palette of colors from established materials and furnishing sources assure that practical solutions are easy to maintain and capitalize on cost saving contracts.

SERVING OUR VETERANS

Sonoma County veterans from their 20’s to their 90’s come from different backgrounds, yet they all share a piece in our country’s history. This model clinic is an example of putting extra attention into design as a way of saying “thank you”.
