VA Medical Center
A national effort
As the Department of Veterans Affairs launches a major initiative to update its facilities nationwide, it will integrate many of the state-of-the-art operational efficiencies, materials handling and information technologies designed in this facility. Patient rooms designed to accept a broad range of acuity levels and flexible design to adapt to changes in technology are concepts that will be integrated into the design of healthcare facilities throughout the country. The new bed tower's prominent location at the front of the hospital provides a fresh image for the campus and resolves many wayfinding concerns.
