White Plains Institute for Rehabilitation & Healthcare
White Plains, NY
Located in downtown White Plains, this new $60M state-of-the-art 5-story rehabilitation and skilled nursing facility is designed to connect residents and family members alike to a lively urban environment. The 110,000 square foot community serves a broad range of medically complex patients and consists of 42 long-term skilled nursing beds, 76 subacute care beds and a 42 bed Memory Care neighborhood. The building is organized with efficient L-shaped neighborhoods designed to optimize travel distances, increase patient observability and maximize interaction. Patient rooms are clustered around the central amenity and service core with both traditional nurse stations at the sub-acute levels and the trending more casual care center for the long-term and Memory Care levels.
The main entrance – resembling a covered hotel arrival – and an outdoor dining terrace are located directly on the public street activating the city sidewalk. Each floor has two common areas in close proximity to a nursing station with expansive glass walls to the outside, designed specifically to accommodate sight lines from a wheelchair’s perspective. One common area is open to the street corner providing views to the surrounding city, while the other has a quieter focus on the green roof terraces of the second and third floors. Outdoor terraces and balconies are centrally located at each level while taking advantage of the sheltered and private side of the building.
First floor amenities include a lounge, lobby area, main dining room, private dining, multipurpose space and a barbershop and hair salon. Comprehensive rehabilitation spaces are located on two levels. The second floor houses a luxurious center easily accessible to and care-specific for the short-term subacute patients from floors two and three. The ground floor houses a more private facility catering to the needs of longer-term patients. The fourth floor is dedicated to Memory Care and the fifth floor is designed for long-term patients. All floors have family waiting areas, dining rooms and lounges with indoor/outdoor activity space.
