- Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Facility / BHSC Center
- The County is proposing the construction and operation of a new BHSC that will serve as a mental health inpatient/outpatient building. The BHSC will replace and consolidate existing mental health services on the SCVMC campus that are currently located in three separate buildings into one facility. Overall, the project is comprised of a 77 bed BHSC, an underground pedestrian tunnel connection to an existing tunnel system that goes from the Receiving and Support Center (RSC) to the main hospital, a skybridge connection to the Main Hospital Emergency Department, and a new 714 car parking structure. New services provided will expand the current adult mental health service programs will increase the current bed count from 50 to 77 beds. The new BHSC facility will be supported by an approximate 400-person staff that will work in three rotating 82-90 person shifts. The project will require utility improvements (water, sanitary sewer, storm drain) to existing utility pipelines in the surrounding streets. Construction of the BHSC requires the removal of an existing two-story, 431-space parking structure. A new 714 car parking structure will be constructed on a site that is occupied by a vacant building that formerly housed the Sam Della Maggiore School which will be demolished.The project would include new landscaping features on both building sites. New trees will be planted along Turner Drive, Middle Drive, and Ginger Lane. The project also includes the demolition of the Don Lowe Pavilion which is currently used for mental health services. This building will be demolished once the new BHSC is open for use. The site of the Don Lowe Pavilion would then be used for a surface parking lot for the foreseeable future.
