Maugel Architects designed a new 83,000sf, 120 private bed skilled nursing facility for Genesis HealthCare located on Loon Hill Road in Dracut. Genesis HealthCare, with over 450 centers in 30 states, specializes in ShortStay care and LongTerm care, memory support, orthopedic rehabilitation, ventilator care, dialysis care, and assisted/senior living services.
A welcoming, open lobby on the entrance floor provides sight lines to a glass-walled therapy area, a restaurant-style dining room, and other building amenities, such as a hair salon, and community gathering space. The three upper floors feature 40 private, light-filled patient rooms on each level, with one floor dedicated for long-term care and two floors designated for short-term care. All floors feature multiple nursing stations, a dining area, nourishment kitchens, medicine rooms, day rooms, staff offices, utility rooms, and rooms for Bariatric and special care. To accommodate higher acuity patients, the facility provides 12 telemetry rooms featuring interactive telemedicine monitors for 24/7 remote patient monitoring.
The site also includes an outdoor therapy garden, ambulance entrances, and a parking area at grade under a portion of the building.
