PACU Rehabilitation Gymnasium
LAN was retained to design a new Post-Acute Care Unit (PACU) at the Christian Health Care Center (CHCC). The PACU gymnasium offers concentrated rehabilitation therapy and skilled-nursing services to help patients transition back home following a hospitalization. The addition is modeled after an ‘apartment’ to reflect a typical residential home. This allows patients the opportunity to practice tasks which are essential to independent living, such as day-to-day activities in the kitchen, living room, and bathroom. A large state-of-the-art gymnasium sits at the back of the addition, where patients can exercise using physical therapy equipment.
