Pleasant Valley State Prison - health care facility improvement program
Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP) is an adult male prison with custody Level I and III inmates, located in the City of Coalinga, Fresno County, California. The project includes four sub-projects to remedy the deficiencies in the health care components established by the California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) Program, and includes the construction of new buildings, renovation of existing buildings, infrastructure, and ancillary improvements.
Program areas include rooms for primary care exam, nursing/OT, medication distribution, mental health interview, sterilization, dental operatory, offices, and other functional support spaces. The sub-projects are designed for sustainability based on the Green Building Code. The renovation and additions for Facilities A, B, C, and D provide primary care services and clinical support space to the inmate-patient population at each facility. The new Administrative Segregation Unit (ASU) Primary Care Clinic provides separate clinical treatment space for the prison's ASU population. The existing Central Health Services building is reconfigured and renovated for specialty and emergency services and consultation. A new Pharmacy & Lab building is constructed to provide pharmaceutical and laboratory processing services to the prison's inmate-patient population. The work is designed in accordance to multiple standards and guidelines using Building Information Modeling (BIM).
