Health Care


St. Mary’s Galena Center is located on an 18.24-acre parcel situated on the south side of the Mt. Rose Highway at its intersection with Wedge Parkway. The project consists of an 81,765 square foot outpatient hospital, a 20,000 square foot medical office building and 33,600 square feet of commercial uses. Each of the building types has its own identity but is unified through a common architectural “vocabulary.” The buildings are designed to be compatible with the architecture at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Redfield Campus, which is across Wedge Parkway, and with the Mt. Rose Highway Scenic Corridor Standards. CFA was responsible for site planning, entitlements, public presentations, preliminary civil engineering and preliminary landscape architecture. CFA also prepared the final civil engineering and landscape plans and was responsible for construction staking for the outpatient facility. Challenges on this site included compliance with the Scenic Corridor Standards and accommodating a major drainage channel that crosses near the middle of the property. Access to this property is via Wedge Parkway, which CFA designed to Washoe County, RTC and NDOT standards. This project was awarded the 2002 Award of Distinction from the Washoe County Design Review Committee. Recipients were St. Mary’s Health Network, Leary Childs Mascari Warner Architects and CFA.
