The Wellness Center’s six-story building has been renovated and re-constructed with the assistant of the RA Government, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and American benefactors. It became a modern diagnostic center. The author of the architectural designs of the building is American-Armenian benefactor Vartkess Balian, one of the very successful builders in the Metropolitan Washington DC area.
The Armenian Government, in recognition of the importance of the work of the Wellness Center, donated the entire building and land to the Center through a special Presidential decree in June 2002. The renovation of the building is partially financed by a grant from American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) Division of the USAID. However, the Armenian American Cultural Association (AACA) is responsible for the majority of the project’s cost. The Wellness Center also got a financial contribution from the Viva Cell ARMENIA.
The expanded Wellness Center is comprised of:
Basement: “Diagnostic Imaging” Department including digital X-Ray, CAT scanner, Bone Densitometry services; Orthopedic service; Pathology laboratory and storage areas.
