Kewa Pueblo Phase 2 Health Center Expansion

Kewa Pueblo Health Center (KPHC) is located on a 13.5 Acre site, the current facility occupies approximately 6.5 acres of the site. KPHC would like to expand the facility to provide services for the growing community. KPHC also draws patients from the surrounding Pueblos, nearby towns and Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Bernalillo. The vision of KPHC is a place for healthcare but a place that inspires healthy living, a wellness campus. The design team reviewed number patient visits, building plans, site and conducted staff interviews. In the interviews IDS+A discussed needs, circulation and equipment, the resulting program includes the department needs. IDS+A recommended an expansion of 18,000 SF which will contain the most clinically intensive and high priority services. This will maximize flexibility and interchangeability and the building should be designed to facilitate future expansion:

  • Pharmacy
  • Lab
  • Urgent Care (could function as primary care space)
  • Imaging (to accompany U.C.)
  • Primary Care
  • Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy
