Wilkes-Barre Community Living Center

Challenge

In addition to several outpatient initiatives, the VA Medical Center has engaged the SDVO-led team to design a one-story, private room 94-bed, three-phase Community Living Center and connector to the main facility.

Solution

After a feasibility study to determine the optimal location for the CLC and connecting corridor, the team continued design with Planetree and LEED tenets at the forefront of the healing environment’s design.

Results

Slated for completion in 2018, the CLC will provide an identity sympathetic to the residential style found throughout the campus. By removing the CLC beds from the inpatient facility, the VAMC will be able to reallocate that much needed space for other pressing healthcare needs.
