Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic

Healthcare | Military


An 84,000 SF, 2-story, build-to-suit medical clinic featuring concrete tilt-up design with conventional spread footings, steel columns and floor framing with metal decking and concrete fill. Roof structure is steel trusses with metal deck. The clinic offers primary care, mental health, dental, optometry, orthopedics as well as other services for veterans and injured service personnel. The building contains a back-up generator for emergency power and two MRI pads that accommodate on-site mobile MRI units. The facility also houses an emergency water supply and a sewage holding tank in the event of an emergency that compromises basic services. Skylights that have openings in the second floor were installed in the main corridor to allow in natural daylight. The new medical clinic is strategically located in close proximity to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Camp Pendleton, allowing easy access for veterans living in the North San Diego County and injured service personnel returning from tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
