Clinica Sierra Vista East Niles Community Health Center  |  Bakersfield, California

Clinica Sierra Vista’s vision for this 13,724 s.f. community clinic was to provide first class healthcare to some of Bakersfield’s most underserved families. With that direction, Boulder Associates designed a one-stop, patient-centered medical home which emphasizes continuity of care, collaborative care, and patient activation.

This health care home features two color-coded pods with open, centralized staff bullpens. These promote direct, face-to-face communication among the staff and allow patients to see their provider team at work. An expandable conference room provides ample space for group care, educational sessions, and support groups. Bright colors and nature-inspired artwork create a vibrant, family-friendly space, including a spacious main waiting area and separate children’s waiting area that allows patients to wait comfortably with their families and children.
