The VA Joliet Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) is a multi-phased renovation project that relocates the existing Joliet Clinic to the former 60,000 SF Silver Cross Emergency Department Pavilion in Joliet, Illinois.
The first phase relocates and expands Primary Care, Mental Health, Women's Health, Telehealth, and Administrative functions to the new space. In order for the new Joliet CBOC to function as a standalone building, utilities were separated from the existing hospital, and a separate boiler plant was constructed to provide steam. The design team worked closely with the VA to meet an aggressive documentation schedule in order to achieve the clinic opening date.
The second phase of the project includes Radiology, Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Audiology, Respiratory, Eye Clinic, Pharmacy, and Lab. These additions provide a marked improvement in the level of care for area Veterans.
