Middle East District, Navy Medical-Dental Clinic Replacement

US Army

Naval Support Activity, Bahrain


The new clinic will replace an existing 1960s facility and provide primary care, dental, imaging and lab services to DoD service members and their families.

The clinic’s exterior design will enhance the visual environment of NSA Bahrain by using the base's material palette to provide a harmonious and balanced design. On the interior, the primary care clinic design is organized around the team work area to follow a lean clinic layout. Public areas, offices, conference rooms, staff lounges, and select patient areas, like physical therapy and dentistry, will be strategically located to allow for natural light. Due to the extreme outdoor temperatures, windows have been kept to a minimum on the East, West, and South facades to reduce the impact of solar heat gain.

Additionally, the project  includes an ambulance canopy, a new dog training area, site improvements, and AT/FP security measures.

Contrack International is the design-build partner on this project.
