Project Description

Golden Valley Health Center is a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center system serving the Central Valley of California. Through a network of sites they provide comprehensive primary medical and dental care to a diverse population, including migrant and seasonal farm workers, Southeast Asian refugees and the homeless population of Modesto. Their main campus is located in Merced where they began providing services back in the early 1970’s. In order to adequately serve their growing elderly population they decided in 2009 to begin planning for a new Senior Health and Wellness Center on the Merced Campus. After securing a Federal Stimulus Grant in late 2009 (they were one of nine clinic projects funded statewide) Kava Massih Architects was hired in the Spring of 2010 to begin design work. The 28,000 square foot outpatient building includes a Senior Health Clinic, a Specialty Clinic, an Eye Center, a Pharmacy and a Laboratory and as well as space for administrative and training functions. The project also included the development of 4.5 acres of existing site including a new central quad and 150 new parking spaces. We worked closely with providers and staff to develop a program to meet current needs while providing sufficient flexibility to handle future changes and program expansion. The building was designed to meet OSHPD 3 standards.
