Charlie Norwood VAMC

Construct Community Living Center

Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center is a two-division, three Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) medical center providing tertiary care in medicine, surgery, neurology, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, and spinal cord injury. The Downtown Division is authorized 156 beds (58 medicine, 27 surgery, and 71 spinal cord injury). The Uptown Division, located approximately three miles away, is authorized 82 beds (57 psychiatry, 15 blind rehabilitation and 10 rehabilitation medicine). In addition, a 132-bed Restorative/Nursing Home Care Unit and a 60-bed Domiciliary are located at the Uptown Division. The medical center serves as a network resource for the treatment of spinal cord injury, blind rehabilitation, post-traumatic stress disorder, and psychiatry patients.

The scope of this project included the renovation of the existing building footprint of the 1st floor of wings 1D and 1E, plus a new addition. The space was combined to house a twenty-seven (27) bed Community Living Center located within the Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Medical Center Campus – Uptown in Augusta, Georgia. The work included complete demolition of 3,900 SF of the existing one story structure to accommodate the new Community Living Center.
