Projects Initiated and In Progress
Primary Care and Geriatric Patient Aligned Care Team (Building 2)
The Coatesville VAMC is currently modernizing the space for our main outpatient services, beginning with primary care. This renovation will bring the Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) design criteria to our primary care and geriatric clinics and allow for greater collaboration and patient management by clinical staff while streamlining care delivery. We are excited to be the first in the VA to retrofit an "H" style building to accommodate space requirements for the PACT model. The ground floor of Building 2, formerly urgent care space, will become the new home of our Geriatric PACT clinic. A new exterior tunnel hallway will be constructed in order to accommodate GeriPACT space requirements. The west end of the first floor will be renovated to comply with Primary Care PACT requirements.
Construction completion for this project is estimated for 2022.
