Wingate St. Francis Long-Term Care Facility
This new 160-bed skilled nursing facility is adjacent to St. Francis Hospital and shares the hospital's access road. Prior to development, the small site posed further design challenges including steep changes in grade elevation and the presence of rock ledge and low wetlands. All these limitations were overcome with careful site planning and positioning of the new structure. The completed 100,000 square-foot facility now houses forty sub-acute care/rehabilitation units, as well as a full dietary kitchen and on-site laundry. The central core serves four radiating nursing wings.
