Warrensburg Health Center
The Warrensburg Health Center is a 17,500-square foot, two-story, state-of-the-art, health center facility, offering pediatric, adult and family medicine practitioners, urgent care, and a wide array of specialty and ancillary services. Located adjacent to the Health Center is the Albert R. Tucker Clinical Services Center, offering pharmacy and dental services. As the project site engineer and landscape architect, Chazen was responsible for design of site layout, site vehicle access and circulation, pedestrian access, pharmacy drive-thru layout, landscaping, signage, utility/stormwater infrastructure improvements as well as NYSDOT coordination and permitting. The design was developed with extensive construction phasing to maintain full access and operation of the existing health center, previously located at the rear of the property, while constructing the new facility directly adjacent to US Route 9. One of the primary goals was to develop natural landscaped, pedestrian space. As such, Chazen developed a healing garden between the Health Center and Clinical Services Center for use by patients, staff, and visitors to promote stress reduction, human health, and well-being. In addition, Chazen designed a park plaza and amphitheater at the lower end of the site near the river, to replace the former Calvin C. Engle Park, previously located adjacent to US Route 9.
