Healthcare Design Optimized for the VA’s PACT Model

Patient Aligned Care Team PACT is a new model of care that transforms the way Veterans receive healthcare. The PACT model is built on the well-known concept of patient-centered care. It involves each Veteran working with health team that plans and administers life-long health and wellness.

Healthcare Design Magazine recently featured the new VA Clinic located in South Jordan, UT.

About the Project

To increase access to care, the new VA Clinic features dozens of exam rooms and spaces specifically designed for family practice, women’s health, telehealth, audiology, mental health, and more. Each service has been optimized around the VA’s Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) model. The PACT initiative encourages a more collaborative and transparent healthcare experience. Supporting this model, the layout and design of the new building focuses on efficient access, intuitive wayfinding, privacy features, and ample workspace for staff.

The facility provides an open and modern aesthetic featuring daylit spaces, clean lines, and durable finishes. Healthcare providers enjoy the benefits of easy circulation to exam rooms, open office space for team collaboration, and break areas filled with natural daylight and floor-to-ceiling views. (source)
