Broome County - Willow Point Nursing Home
This project incorporates the complete replacement of Broome County’s existing skilled nursing facility with a new 264,000 s.f., two-story, 300-bed resident campus organized around 40-bed residential scale neighborhoods which are further divided into two 20-bed resident households. Each home-like household has independent dining, activities, private lounges and gathering spaces. The percentage of double bedrooms to single/private resident bedrooms equates to a 80/20 ratio. All of the double bedrooms layouts feature an ‘L’ shaped bedroom that privatizes each resident space. The design allows the nursing staff and administration to provide a multitude of differing levels of care and therapies at each 40-bed resident unit; from sub acute rehabilitation, to dementia care, to Assisted Living.
All of the residential-scale neighborhoods connect to the main Community Center which houses resident social spaces consisting of an Auditorium, Café, Bank, Therapy Wellness, Salon, and Shops. With the Community Center located in a central position, all visitors, residents and administration animate the main social spaces and allow great opportunities for shared activities among residents, staff and family to take place. Separate from the main resident corridor, all linen, dietary, and other ancillary services function independently both vertically and horizontally from the resident circulation paths and programmed spaces.
