This 100-bed, all-private room facility, conveniently located off of Interstate 94 between Paw Paw and Kalamazoo, is a short-term nursing care and therapy center for adult patients following illness, injury, or hospitalization.
The facility houses a café, community room, multiple courtyards, library, rehabilitation gym equipped with a full-scale kitchen, salon, and wooded views to provide patients with a relaxed, at-home feel.
The project consisted of three phases, including site clearing, site work, and construction of the facility. A few unique features of the building include:
- Abuse-resistant drywall, which was installed throughout the corridors to allow for more wear and tear than typical drywall
- Twenty-seven (27) patient rooms with med-gas capabilities (including oxygen and vacuum) and eight (8) patient rooms that are suited to accommodate bariatric patients
- Door operations that tie into other components throughout the building, including a WanderGuard® departure alert system to prevent patient walk-offs
