Palomar Health – Satellite Campus and Community Wellness Center
- 11,500 SF, 1-story Community Wellness Center remodel
- 40,000 SF, 2-story Medical Office Building
- Rancho Penasquitos, California
The Palomar Health (PH) 11,000 square foot Community Wellness Center will be one component of a new two-building satellite campus focusing both on medical education and medical practice with its complement being a new 40,000 square foot medical office building situated to the north.
Classroom services at the Center will include instruction pertaining to birthing, behavioral health, diabetes health, wound care and nutrition. There will also be group meeting rooms for educational community outreach programs.
The Center building design was developed through a compromise of inscribing PPH’s signature on the site while maintaining a level of visual consistency with the surrounding community. Exterior garden and meditation spaces emphasize the healing nature and focus of PPH while soft curving walls and warm materials are used to evoke a welcoming embrace to its visitors.
