With one of the fastest growing Veteran populations in the country, the Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will provide an accessible suite of healthcare services, including eye care, mental health services, physical therapy, prosthetics, laboratory and pharmacy, and radiology to Veterans across the Hampton Roads region. VHB provided a full suite of integrated services, including environmental permitting for wetlands, surveying, site and civil engineering, and landscape architecture.
The 205,000-square-foot facility will be located on a 25-acre site that will leverage existing wetlands for an attractive, natural habitat and backdrop. VHB’s landscape architects designed the outdoor spaces to enhance the Veteran experience, prioritizing restorative healthcare options, including a healing garden, courtyards, outdoor seating, and spaces for respite for employees and patients. The facility will be strategically located adjacent to Chesapeake Regional Medical Center and Cypress Landing Veterans Housing, a 50-unit community for low-income, homeless veterans. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs continues to build new CBOCs across the U.S.
