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.
