Kaiser Watsonville Center

This project repurposed a neglected stripmall into a community health center that celebrates the vibrancy of one of California’s agricultural communities.

Here the former retail storefront has become a vitrine projecting Kaiser’s “Thrive” message to the community. This project delivers primary care, radiology and mammography services and includes a blood lab and pharmacy.  HPS also took their collaborative approach to the next level by teaming with a General Contractor and delivering this project under a Design Build contractual approach thereby reducing the schedule and project costs.
