Adventist Health Central Valley and Valley Children’s Healthcare partnered to create Fowler Medical Plaza as a destination health, wellness, and community center. It serves the California Central Valley community through all stages of life—from birth to elderly care—with a focus on education and promoting healthier living.

The 46,000 SF medical plaza is visible from Highway 99, surrounded by agriculture fields and orchards near Sequoia National Forest and National Park. A bright and open reception area welcomes visitors, where structural columns disguised as “trees” support the glass canopy roof and circular skylights. The clinical spaces feature a subdued palette, with details representing local orchards and agriculture. Regionally inspired artwork enhances wayfinding and showcases local artists and historical elements. Interactive technology engages children, while colors, shapes, and light provide visual and sensory interest. A large, central courtyard offers biophilic respite and a safe play area.

Completion Date: 2019
