Dayton VAMC Waiting Area

Improve Sub-Specialty Waiting Area

Client: VA Medical Center, Dayton, Ohio

Paradigm is providing design services for an approximately 4,600 square foot renovation in this extremely busy Primary Care Sub-Specialty Clinic. The current layout of this Dayton VAMC waiting area is inefficient and includes an 1,800 square foot unfinished area. Wayfinding is poor and is an issue throughout the main hospital building. Paradigm is realigning the clinic space and adding nine new exam rooms, which is intended to promote better patient flow and improve patient privacy and access to care.
