A 95,000-sf, three-story healthcare facility is currently under construction directly adjacent to the 101 Freeway overlooking a wooded park site in San Jose, Calif. The $40 million V.A. San Jose Community-Based Outpatient Clinic will provide veterans and their families with healthcare services.

The building is being designed as a “healing oasis” that is inspired by scenic views of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It will allow patients, families, and care providers to connect with the outdoors via a park and other outdoor recreational areas. “The concept is based on incorporating air, light and space so the design becomes a part of the healing process for patients,” says Hosam Habib, AIA, Lead Designer, Hoefer Wysocki, in a release.

The space will use a modular floor plan to separate patient and staff corridors, which reduces noise and activity levels and contributes to a better healing environment.

The first floor will include general registration, imaging, a lab and pharmacy, and a mental health outpatient clinic. The second floor will be designed for outpatient services including primary care, audiology and speech pathology, podiatry, optometry, and dermatology. The third floor will be dedicated to specialty services such as a women’s health clinic. An outdoor terrace will also be located on the third floor to provide a space for patients, their families, and clinic staff to relax. The campus will also feature a memorial park to honor and thank veterans for their service.
