Renovation and expansion of the existing Community Living Center (CLC) at the H.H. McGuire VAMC project includes the addition of a new specialty care Community Living Center and coordinated Community Living Center Master plan to align each of the hospital four (4) CLC wings and maintain their 100 bed designation. The design also include a section for dementia patients.
The facility’s addition will be private patient rooms with individual bathing facilities, activity rooms, group therapy rooms, and family meeting spaces to implement and enhance Cultural Transformation Concepts. The existing CLC is upgrading the existing patient rooms to meet current design standards and correct deficiencies identified in the current VA Planning Guidelines, Physical Security requirements, and projected workload statistics.
The new 12 bed CLC and master plan will develop a signature entry for each household on the hospital campus and neighborhood and community spaces will aligned to improve wayfinding and operational functions between houses.
The CLC addition design utilizes the VA’s space planning criteria and supplemental design guides to optimize the resident’s experience while maintain VA CLC requirements. The VA’s Cultural Transformation program will incorporate the current CLC’s commitment to the Eden Alternative method of care through landscaping, site design, architecture, space planning and interior design.
