Saiful Bouquet prepared Bridging Documents for the High Desert Health System’s Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center. The new 141,000 MACC building replaced the current buildings which are remotely located and spread among several wings of a building originally constructed as a hospital. The clinical building was designed as a 2-story moment frame and the craft & maintenance buildings are CMU wall construction.
The new complex consists of a new ambulatory care facility to house a large ambulatory surgical center, adult and pediatric primary care clinics, an urgent care clinic, a women’s clinic, and medical and surgical subspecialty clinics. The facility also houses ancillary diagnostic and treatment services, including imaging, laboratory, electro diagnostic testing, pharmacy, and therapy services as well as an administration/support services facility to house administrative and support services, such as finance, information systems, materials management, and environmental services; and an on-site central plant. The project included site improvements to the property to support the MACC complex. The facility was designed to achieve LEED Silver Certification.
