A skilled nursing facility on 28 acres in Colombus, Ga., was designed for a neighborhood feel, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Operations.

The buildings will feature home-like environments in each unit with stone electric fireplaces, spa tubs and showers, and high-end window treatments. Each building also will have nurses’ stations, dining facilities and living room areas, the article said.

The facility also has a 26,000-square-foot rehabilitation unit called the “town center.” The center includes a gymnasium and an aqua therapy room as well as a salon and chapel. 

The outdoor rehab courtyard is constructed with different walking surfaces to simulate orchard gardens and the space offers various patios, the article said.
