Client: Exceptional Care for Children
Area:75,000 SF
Completion: 2006

Colimore Architects originally designed the 75,000 square foot, four-building complex for a 60-bed Head Injury Recovery and Rehabilitation Center. The residential building was converted to a 20-bed children’s hospice (skilled nursing) on two floors and accommodations for up to ten visiting families on the third floor. Architectural, structural, and HVAC modifications were accomplished and medical gases and a nurse call system were designed. Special design considerations included a refrigerated family viewing room, a multi-sensory room, and a body holding room.
