Situated at a transit gateway to downtown San Jose, served by a future BART station and a major bus corridor, the Valley Health Center serves to connect three multi-cultural vicinities that historically have lacked medical services.
The three-story, 62,000 square foot facility includes urgent care for adults and children, primary care for pediatric, OB/GYN and family medicine, behavioral health services, laboratory, pharmacy and radiology departments. Details include 12 urgent care exam rooms, 22 clinic exam rooms, 12 pediatric, 12 ob/gyn exam rooms, and 2 eye exam rooms in a perimeter corridor and pod design. Providing primary and specialty care services under one roof allows great convenience to patients and family members.
Ratcliff incorporated light and sustainable design elements to achieve LEED Gold certification, and composed the interior building architecture, colors and materials to reflect the multi-cultural clientele and the facility’s urban downtown location located by a significant creek and wildlife habitat. Warm, pleasing interiors greet a diverse patient population and provide an ambiance helpful in reducing anxieties associated with medical visits.
