United Helper's Nursing Home - Ogdensburg
This project consists of additions and renovations to the United Helpers Nursing Home Campus. The United Helpers Management Company decided to merge the Cedars Nursing Home’s beds onto the United Helpers Nursing Home Campus, 1.5 miles away. The merger results in a new 180-bed skilled nursing facility.
The existing two-story United Helpers Nursing Home is located on an 10 acre site along the bank of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The existing first and second floor lounges and forty-five of the existing resident rooms command views of the River. The additions take advantage of the existing building’s established circulation patterns and make the most of the existing site’s vistas.
These two major additions ameliorate the congestion of the existing facility and improve nursing and service relationships. The additions and renovations utilize “Neighborhood” and “Household-styled” layouts in an effort to decentralize the service areas and achieve a more residential scale.
