Health Care, Supportive
The renovation and expansion of this 90-bed Skilled Nursing Facility in Danville, Illinois provides major programmatic upgrades. WJW’s design includes a new addition and substantial renovations to this legacy building to promote the operator’s focus on resident-centered care.
The addition will provide a “Rehab to Home” suite, which features a combination of eight new private and semi-private resident rooms in addition to nine fully renovated existing rooms. The semi-private rooms were designed with the aim of maximizing resident autonomy, with individual windows, TVs and sitting areas for family members.
The focal point of the new wing includes a resident spa, lounge, and state-of-the-art physical therapy suite. The physical therapy suite will be used for both in- and out-patient therapy, and features a mock home for occupational therapy and covered patio space for respite. The Rehab suite positions the community to meet the needs of the growing market for short-term Medicare-reimbursed rehabilitation care.
The renovation of the existing building includes a number of evidence-informed design interventions, including the redesign of two nurse stations, creation of a new entry lobby, resident lounge, administrator office, conference room, and staff lounge. The renovation is designed to create a warm, welcoming, and functional experience for visitors, residents, and staff alike.
