Oregon Veterans have a reason to smile at the Department of Veterans
Affairs Medical Center in Roseburg, Oregon. The addition of a brand new
11 chair dental clinic will provide patients the long overdue access to
the proper state-of-the art care they deserve.
Originally designed as general medical hospital, the VA Roseburg
Healthcare System includes a rich history of expansion, growth, and
change designed to better serve our nations heroes. The genesis of the
now 80 year-old campus, several of which buildings are listed on the
National Register of Historic Places, began as the Oregon State
Soldiers' Home. Built in 1933, the original five-story brick hospital,
with magnificent commanding white pillars at the front entry still seen
today, is the cornerstone for the campus. Subsequent buildings followed
the same design pattern and were built adjacent to the location of The
Oregon State Soldiers' Home.
The Veterans Affairs Roseburg Health Care System is going through a
series of renovations and upgrades to better serve our nations veterans,
specifically the 62,000 veterans that reside in Central and Southern
Oregon and Northern California. As part of the campus upgrades, Kevcon,
Inc. was hired by the Department of Veterans Affairs to design and build
a new Dental Clinic of approximately 7,750 gross square feet to include
a new parking lot for patients and staff.
The project includes 8 general treatment operatory rooms, 2 dental
hygiene operatory rooms, an oral surgery room, patient recovery room,
panoramic X-ray room, waiting and reception, restrooms, storage room,
copy room, offices, conference space, staff lounge, dental laboratory,
and ceramics room. Other support space: IT closets, Telecom rooms,
mechanical rooms etc. The building has attained Two Green Globes and
complies with VA Sustainable Design & Energy Reduction guidelines.
The opening of the clinic helped address a community need and has
significantly reduced patient waiting times. The old dental space was
only 2,500 square-foot and not able to handle the need. With over 8,000
patients a year, patients had to wait as long as 4 months to obtain
dental treatment. The new facilities will more than double capacity,
accommodate the new dentists the VA has begun hiring, reduce patient
waiting times, and increase the number of patients that can be treated
Previously unavailable at the Roseburg campus, the new facility offers
X-Ray machines that are capable of 3-D scans. The equipment in the new
lab is able to use computerized scans to design and mil crowns in the
The rectangular design features high ceilings and lots of natural light
as well as indirect linear light fixtures. The interior has a circular
flow pattern with dental chairs at the core and on both sides of the
hallways. The reception area overlooks landscaped areas mimic a park
like setting. A covered canopy connects the new clinic to the existing
hospital providing protection from the elements during transit between
Overall, the scope of work contracted by Kevcon involved design, general
construction, earthwork and site utilities, structural steel, concrete,
masonry, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire suppression, electronic
safety and security and interior finishes.
Kevcon is a SDVOSB (Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business) that
employs mostly veterans. For Kevcon, this project was another chance to
provide fellow veterans with a modern facility for their healthcare
