VA Connecticut Health Care System
Mental Health, West Haven Campus
West Haven, Connecticut
The previous 30-bed, 9,300 SF mental health unit was outdated, housed patients only in multi-bed rooms, and had shared toilet and shower rooms.
The new 34-bed, 23,000 SF unit provides for modern standards of care in private and semi-private rooms all with private toilet and bathing facilities. A separate secure unit for female patients has also been provided. All spaces were designed to minimize the risk of patient suicide and to enhance patient and staff security.
The unit provides for generous common spaces and group rooms with warm, durable and easily maintainable finishes. This multi-phased project was a complete gut and rebuild including the mechanical systems. Moser Pilon Nelson and our consultants provided comprehensive services including hazardous material abatement, interior design including furniture selection, and medical equipment selection.
