Laguna Honda Tour

Tour one of the first public healthcare facilities to comply with the Green Building Council’s LEED® standards for environmental sustainability.

Stantec Architecture, in association with Anshen + Allen, was commissioned to design this historic complex as a national model for long-term public healthcare. The project encompasses a comprehensive program of housing and a continuum of long-term health care services including 30 beds of acute care units, acute general medical facilities, and rehabilitation. The 1,170 beds of skilled nursing facilities include units for chronic care, dementia, psycho-social, AIDS/HIV, rehabilitation, total care, hospice, and restorative care. The scope of services includes master planning, programming, and design of state-of-the-art facilities totaling 751,000 sf, with 607,000 sf in new construction and a 144,000-sf remodel of the original landmark hospital building. Work on this complex entailed an outreach program to build support within a politically sensitive, diverse, and active community.

As this is a construction site, pants and close toed, flat shoes are required. Please bring a hardhat if you have one, though some will be provided. There will be no elevator, and the tour includes 4 flights of stairs and lots of walking, so please consider this when registering. We will meet in the main lobby of the old building adjacent to the Forest Hill muni station at 2:45, and the tour will start promptly at 3:00 pm.
