Licensed Skilled Nursing Facility Replaces Out-of-Date Complex
Looking to replace an existing elderly care facility in dire need of repair, the Good Samaritan Group contracted with Farnsworth Group to design a new facility that would provide a broad array of elderly care.
The new 90 bed licensed skilled nursing facility is built on a green field site adjacent to the hospital in Pontiac, Illinois.
The building has four components: long-term care, rehabilitation care, memory support and administrative services. The administrative services wing includes offices, an outpatient therapy unit, 100 seat dining room, commercial kitchen, commercial laundry, and activity areas.
Each of the three licensed wings have a shared lounge, open design nursing station, clean and soiled utility rooms, nurses lounge accommodations, special care/isolation room, a central shower/tub room, storage, and access to a landscaped patio. Forty-percent of the patient rooms are single occupancy with private bathrooms. The balance of the remaining patient rooms are single occupancy. Full bathroom units are shared by two contiguous single occupant bedrooms.
