Innovative Design Consolidates Diverse Behavioral Health Programs into One Comprehensive Center

February 2018
Project Brief
The Center For Health Design

The Merrifield Center

Farifax, Virginia


The Question

How to develop creative and practical solutions for a new facility that already had an established footprint in order to make the best use of the space while satisfying the various programs’ needs?

The Goal

With more than two dozen behavioral health programs scattered throughout Fairfax county, many in rundown facilities and some with leases that were ending, the county wanted to consolidate some of these services into one modern and flexible facility that would reduce costs and improve access for clients, while still maintaining privacy and security.
