Kaweah Delta Healthcare District
The Dialysis Center serves the Kaweah Delta Health Care District as an outpatient dialysis facility. The Center houses 26 dialysis treatment stations plus support services, and is located east of the existing mental health hospital. To facilitate the healing process, the design of the Center allows enough natural light for a bright, open atmosphere while still maintaining the desired level of seclusion for the privacy of patients. Because water purification systems are a critical component of dialysis treatment, the Center is designed with the most advanced reverse-osmosis water purifying system. Darden Architects’ Interior Design and Architecture departments worked closely throughout the design process in order to assure space was allotted for the necessary medical equipment. This integrated methodology has produced a uniquely inviting facility that caters to the functional needs of the medical procedures conducted within while adhering closely to State Agency regulations.
