Kohler Ronan provided a complete array of engineering design services in conjunction with the new construction of an adult care facility located on a 34-acre campus in Mount Vernon, New York. The 80,000 square-foot facility is the first healthcare building in the town of Mount Vernon to have received a LEED certification.
The scope of the project included mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems spanning three floors above ground as well as one underground parking garage. LEED services were also provided in order for staff to deliver healthcare in an environmentally conscious space.
The facility itself consists of fifty skilled nursing beds throughout four distinct neighborhoods. Each neighborhood includes a dining room, country kitchen, and common activities area. The upper floors incorporate skilled nursing and rehabilitation areas while the lower level consists of two adult day care centers offering both social and medical services depending on patient and/or resident needs.
In 2013, Wartburg was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as among the best nursing homes in New York State for the third consecutive year.
