When the VA at the Palo Alto Medical Center came to The Design Partnership, they were hoping to refresh their existing Dialysis Unit, replace failing equipment and expand the number of patient stations.  Located on the West-facing fa├žade above the main entrance to the hospital, the we immediately seized on the opportunity to infuse the space with natural light.  By opening up the rooms, creating cubbies for all the miscellaneous equipment and receptacles, we were able to also make a once-cluttered space almost serene.  Updated, durable finishes enhance the space, while our veterans receive the care they rightly deserve.
