Project summary provided by submitting company.
Kaiser Permanente is bringing a new destination healthcare campus to Dublin, California, providing local residents with access to state-of-the-art medical care. SmithGroup designed the 175,000 gsf MOB to ease patients into treatment and move past an institutional facade. From street level, the building is broken into multiple dimensions by using a large mechanical and sun screen to convey depth and personality. As visitors enter the facility, a bend in the building reveals a healing garden creating a smooth transition between the structure and the site. Furthermore, the interior design helps create a nurturing environment with notes from the rolling hills and gradient colors of the tri-valley create a welcoming and nurturing environment for patients and their families visiting the center. The new SMOB will consist of advanced medical, ambulatory surgery and recovery, urgent care, and other specialty medical clinics with ancillary services including general imaging, lab, and pharmacy spaces. Kaiser Permanente Dublin also houses a 45,000 gsf cancer center that will consist of radiation oncology with four linear accelerators and feature its own drop-off and entrance area.
