Park View Care Center

Sponsored by Elim Care

Buffalo, MN

 

IN BRIEF

124 Long Term Care Beds

20 Person Adult Day Center

 

THE CHALLENGE

To reposition an aging care center for neighborhoods while working within the existing building.

 

THE SOLUTION

Faced with several space inefficiencies and needed upgrades, ParkView Care Center took advantage of moratorium funding to move from the medical model and sterile environment - common with facilities of its day -towards a vibrant community within a community.

 

While creating unit neighborhoods with improved dining and centralized therapy spaces, the facility was also able to address limited privacy, inadequate service space and vital upgrades to kitchen, laundry, fire and nurse call systems.

 

The project completed created a culture change for this organization, integrating neighborhood unit clusters and the personalized delivery of care that goes along with it, including new dining and activity options.

 

The results are dynamic and with them come improved resident satisfaction, higher occupancy and enhanced marketability.
