The Kansas City VA Medical Center is a busy hospital and clinic that needed a centralized main entrance to their complex of interconnected buildings. The existing single-story entry was unassuming and tucked back into a shaded courtyard. WAI designed a 2-story infill addition that gives the entrance presence and improves patient pick-up and drop-off. The grand lobby connects two existing buildings (with future connection to a third) and contains waiting areas, patient check-in terminals, visitor restrooms, and the OEF/OIF clinic.
Patients and employees alike are now greeted by a bright, welcoming energy.
