The addition comprised of 15 Single-Occupancy Beds and Restrooms, allowing the decompression of previous Double-Occupancy units . This improves patient dignity, privacy, and comfort.
An outdoor recreation area adjoining the Indoor Recreation area Dining Areas includes several amenities that create a home-like environment for residents. This includes a garden, a dedicated outdoor restroom, as well as a picnic shed. A laundry area, medication storage, and a new elevator were also included in the design. 29 additional surface parking spots were added to support visitor and employee needs, requiring extensive site work.
