Renovating this approximately 29,000 SF skilled nursing area was driven by a patient and family-centered care model and the desire to increase consumer satisfaction while providing a more home-like healing environment.
d’Youville Pavilion is a 42-bed, private-room, transitional rehabilitation unit that provides rehabilitation care for St. Mary’s patients recovering from injury, illness or surgery. Renovations encompassed the entire second floor space and incorporated evidence-based design for seniors and green guidelines.
The major challenge was spatial constraints. The design team was limited by existing parameters, but were able to meet the client’s desire to add more program space such as the rehab spaces, wireless technology, bariatric suites and private bathrooms in every patient room.
