East Cliff Family Health Center
Santa Cruz CA
Wald, Ruhnke & Dost Architects partnered with Santa Cruz Community Health Centers in constructing the East Cliff Family Health Center to support the Centers' goal of providing high-quality primary care, pediatric services and health education regardless of economic status.
The Center features a glass nucleus where healthcare professionals can work and communicate more efficiently (and sometimes wave to their young patients as they leave!). Bright accent colors are used throughout the facility, and frosted glass doors on individual patient rooms provide an open feeling while still protecting patients' privacy.
WRD provided architectural design, space planning, interior design, and construction management for the 9,000 square-foot space, which includes 15 exam rooms, a procedure room, three behavioral health counseling rooms, on-site lab services, prenatal education office, break room and conference room.
