Virginia Eye Consultants promotes a holistic approach to medical care that is dedicated not only to treating symptoms, but also to addressing the causes and effects of medical conditions. Accommodating the broadest possible range of patient services to support this approach to healing was a primary goal in building a new facility. The resulting two-story facility provides spacious housing for an ophthalmic clinic, an eye surgery center, audiology and dietary/nutritional care, a senior home-health-care department, and an optical research department.
The red brick structure, inlaid with translucent walls and vision panels, is capped with a standing seam metal roof and features a drop-off entry canopy with exposed steel trusses. Virginia Eye Consultants’ professional but holistic approach to healthcare is reflected in the interior design. High-tech finishes mirror the clinical environment and equipment, while porcelain tile, carpet, wood floors, and a café in the waiting area create a sense of warmth and human scale to establish an environment that promotes thorough patient care and comfort.
