This 100,000-SF nursing center in Milledgeville, Georgia, privately developed and managed by CorrectHealth LLP in Atlanta, was completed in 2016. The facility consists of 280 beds for skilled nursing care. It is separated into eight patient care wings to allow flexibility to meet the changing patient population. Many of the patients are elderly and medically fragile former state prisoners who have no families or homes to return to upon release. Other patients are individuals with severe psychiatric and behavioral health conditions who are wards of the state and typically must be held in a restricted environment. 

The wings are organized off a central clinical and administrative core. Additional programs include an activity room, a dining room, a multi-purpose room/chapel, offices, nursing rooms, and six large exterior courtyards. Interior design emphasizes color/way-finding elements and lounge elements to create a sense of community. Exterior design incorporates modern materials and creates an energy-efficient envelope.

These four 11,000-SF personal care homes on the campus of Eastern State Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky make up the Central Kentucky Recovery Center. Each home has the capacity to house 16 people.

These homes offer less restrictive care than the neighboring psychiatric hospital. Resembling units of an apartment complex, the design and programs are dedicated to helping individuals transition to community living. Featuring courtyards and open-air porches, the buildings take advantage of the park-like setting and allow plenty of natural light inside. This is a LEED certified project — meeting the highest green building and performance standards.


This 45,000-SF project is comprised of both assisted and independent living facilities. Additional programs include a library, a sunroom, a dining room, offices, and nursing centers. Interior design emphasized natural light and comfortable seating areas for small groups to congregate off the corridors. Exterior design reflects the residential scale of adjoining properties and incorporates historic elements from the fine, single-family homes in the area while protecting the overall campus integrity.
