A new 100,000 sq. foot nursing center in Milledgeville, Georgia, privately developed and managed by CorrectHealth LLP in Atlanta, will commence with this project, a 280 bed geriatric care facility. Many of the patients will be elderly and medically fragile former state prisoners who have no families or homes to return to upon release. Other patients will be individuals with severe psychiatric and behavioral health conditions that are wards of the state and typically must be held in a restricted environment. Construction is expected to be complete next year, with an estimated opening date in February of 2016.
These four 11,000 sq. foot 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 also a LEED certified project which meets the highest green building and performance standards.
This project is comprised of both assisted and independent living facilities. Additional programs include a library, sun room, dining room, offices, and nursing. 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.
