Situated at a transit gateway to downtown San Jose, served by a future BART station and a major bus corridor, the Valley Health Center connects three multicultural vicinities that historically have lacked access to medical services.

The three-story, 62,000 SF facility includes urgent care for adults and children, primary care for pediatric, OB/GYN and family medicine, behavioral health services, and laboratory, pharmacy, and radiology departments. Details include 12 urgent care exam rooms, 22 clinic exam rooms, 2 eye exam rooms, 12 pediatric exam rooms, and 12 OB/GYN exam rooms in a perimeter corridor and pod design.

Ratcliff incorporated light and sustainable design elements to achieve LEED Gold certification, and composed the interior building architecture, colors, and materials to reflect the multicultural clientele and the facility’s urban downtown location. Warm, pleasing interiors greet a diverse patient population and provide an ambiance helpful in reducing anxieties associated with medical visits.
