In 2020, MHTN Architects (Salt Lake City), an architecture and design firm, partnered with The University of Utah Health (Salt Lake City) to complete the South Jordan VA Clinic in South Jordan, Utah, for the United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). The 30,000-square-foot facility expands the services currently offered in West Valley City, Utah, to South Jordan, allowing the new clinic to serve an additional 4,000 veterans.

To increase access to care, the clinic features dozens of exam rooms and spaces specifically designed for family practice, women’s health, telehealth, audiology, mental health, and more. These services have been optimized around the VA’s Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) model, an initiative encouraging a more collaborative and transparent healthcare experience. Supporting this model, the layout and design address the patient care experience by focusing on efficient access, intuitive wayfinding, privacy features, and ample workspace for staff.

The facility provides an open and modern aesthetic featuring daylit spaces, clean lines, and durable finishes. Healthcare providers enjoy the benefits of easy circulation to exam rooms, open office space for team collaboration, and break areas filled with natural daylight and floor-to-ceiling views.
