West Tennessee Transitional Care Facility
TENNESSEE HEALTH MANAGEMENT
ANF Architects has worked closely with Tennessee Health Management (THM) on many projects. For the West Tennessee Transitional Care Facility (WTTC), located in Jackson, TN, ANF designed this two-story, 59,000 SF skilled nursing building to accommodate adults in need of rehabilitative therapy due to medical trauma resulting from surgery, injury, or illness.
The 4,000 SF glass enclosed, light filled physical therapy wing, the building’s main focus, has a 24’ high ceiling and contains specialized strengthening equipment. A commercial kitchen with a large dining room and patio overlook the adjacent city park. All 67 rooms have a view of a centralized courtyard, the city park or heavily landscaped areas. The occupational therapy area includes a kitchen and laundry facility so residents may be re-introduced to the physical process of performing daily chores. This short-stay healthcare facility focuses on adults 65 and older. It has 67 private rooms and offers physical, occupational and speech therapy for those who are transitioning from hospital to home. The building incorporates sustainable design features as well as an energy management system to help control mechanical and electrical usage. "With my almost 30 years in the business, I have used many architectural firms. ANF has established their company as a leader in the healthcare industry. No matter if it is a 1200 sf internal renovation or a stand alone state of the art short stay rehab they listen and deliver exactly what is needed. Their greatest attribute is they listen then deliver. " Joe Strawn, Project Director, SummitView Health Management, formerly with Tennessee Health Management (THM)
