Project Description

This 93-room “step down hospital” concept was the biggest of its kind.  Its immediate access to an elevated covered walkway to the Temple Medical Center made it convenient in the event emergency care was needed. Set up as a hotel environment with EMT’s as concierges at each level, this made convalescing patients comfortable as they spent their last days after surgery recovering in a more comfortable, less expensive environment. The project included 2 pools with complete filtration components, locker, dressing and shower rooms.  A 3-lane 75’ lap pool for Hydro Therapy was designed to assist rehabilitation efforts.  A 6’ deep 20’ x 20’ heated pool was also designed for recovering patients to begin water type exercises.
